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!
