On a whim, we took Addie ice skating today for the first time. She's been asking to go for a couple of months now. We have a rink about 4 minutes from us, but we also have access to an outdoor rink (a.k.a. iced over tennis courts) at the club we belong to and thought we'd try there. So, while the munchkins were napping, Dustin and I called around to the local Once Upon a Child stores and found some size 8/9 skates and helmet. They weren't purple, as she has requested (they were boys, actually), but they did the trick! She had a blast and was pretty good!
