Embracing Michigan

So we decided if you can't beat 'em join 'em.
Since we live in this winter wonderland, we decided to take advantage of the outdoor activity. Some good friends build an ice rink in their back yard every year, and Lucas wanted to learn to skate. So we headed over there today. We borrowed some skates, that were a little big, and he headed out. He took some hard falls, but within 10 minutes was cruising around on his own. He has never put skates on before and I was totally impressed.

Whitney is taking ice skating lessons and has a test tomorrow so she is practicing, or supposed to be at least.

Here she is doing some posing

so Lucas made it from one end of the rink to the other without falling down and doing alot of gliding. He skated for about an hour and when we left he said it was fun and wants to come back.

Looks like great fun! Mark keeps threatening to make an ice rink in our yard. He even has the plans printed out and had an area set to if he just had the time. I keep telling him that Indiana weather won't allow for this...well maybe this year it would have!
