We took the girls rollerskating for the very first time yesterday. The idea of putting on skates and dancing to fun music was way exciting to them.
Mike also rented skates (while I wussed out) so he took the girls out on the floor one at a time. Skating was a challenge for both of them, and sadly, unsuccessful. They couldn't stay standing for more than a few seconds on the wood floor. Fortunately, I think they thought falling was fun! They practiced on the carpeted areas and observed all the other skaters for awhile.
Kaia is a little less daring than Halle, so she spent most of the night on the sidelines lookin pretty.
After awhile, we decided to rent this walker-like thing. Kaia gave it a try, but decided she was happier just watching. Halle, however, went all the way around the ring several times. She still fell a lot, but did much better and really enjoyed herself.
Overall, we had a good time, and we'd totally do it again sometime. Next time I promise I'll rent skates too!
