In an effort to be more active, we bought in line skates. Both kids got skates for their birthdays. They are the kind that have a training like wheel on them and can be adjusted when they are ready to go without the extra support.
This past weekend was the first time in fifteen years that I put on in line skates. Truth be told, they make me a little nervous. I mean really, the brake is a total joke. So this is me trying not to fall on my face.
Then both kids thought it would be fun to hang on me like a jungle gym. So this is me with two kids hanging off of me, trying not to fall on my face.
Captain Canada looked a lot more smooth than I did. This is me trying to take a picture that is in focus as he plays a moving target.
After managing to skate without falling on my face and taking a photo that was in focus, I needed a rest.
All in a days work.
My goal is to be a little more brave and a little more steady on the wheels this summer. If I do, I will be happy to meet my goal. If not, I will have some good stories to tell, a.k.a blog fodder.
