Every year, our ward has a roller skating party at the local rink, typically around Halloween. We usually dress up, but this year it was such a crazy day that I went as an extremely stressed out mom. It seemed appropriate.
Ellie was determined to learn how to skate this year and worked really hard at it. Maggie had a great time skating with her friends and I was just happy to be back on skates after a post-surgery break. Griffin brought his scooter and was thrilled to go round and round when he wasn't looking at the arcade games.
One thing that was learned: it's really hard to get decent pictures when people are skating in a not-well-lit establishment.
