Did I mention that we were at the local Ice Arena? Oh, well we were. The girls school had a fundraiser for the PTSA there and when I signed us up it didn't even enter my head that it would be freezing cold, that was just an added bonus. We had so much fun.
Within moments of arriving Lily took off on the ice with some of her classmates and would only stop to say hello every now and again as she and her friends flew by. They would all say hello as they shot by at the speed of light. Rosie kept us moving at a much slower pace, think snail, for most of the evening. She finally gained some confidence and asked me how to go a little faster. I am no ice skater and only know how to go forwards, I can go fast and can't go backwards and sadly have no idea how to stop. I just hit the rail. As a kid that didn't bother me at all. Now it seems a little more intimidating as I fly into the wall.
I showed her what she needed to do to pick up speed and off she went. She loved it. Thankfully she didn't ask me how to stop, she would just slow down or sometimes she fell before that happened.
I kept my phone in my pocket but still only managed 2 pictures. Moving targets with flashing disco lighting does not easy picture taking make. I have lots of black ones and tonnes of blurry, "I think that's Lily" types ones.

|a very blurry Rosie. I would like to blame it on the speed she was going but not so much.|
What a great night we had. Now both the girls want to go back again. I do too I just wish those
