New Jersey...Day Three

Tuesday the whole family gathered together at a local ice skating rink. To say our girls were thrilled would be an understatement. They had been talking about trying ice skating forever, so I was excited to see how it would go. I wasn't sure if I was going to be much help, I hadn't been on the ice since I was probably about 10 years old, but I was very happy that my butt didn't hit the ice once!

Me with Laura, I explained to her that the wall was her friend. I can remember making numerous laps at the Huntsville, AL rink we used to visit over our Thanksgiving break holding onto the wall for support.

The girls got so much confidence form being able to brace themselves on the walkers.

I was so glad that I was able to help the girls as well as keep myself upright, a very successful trip to the rink!

After ice skating, we all went to Chick-fil-A, you know I have to try one in every town we visit. After a good meal and some playground time for the kids we made a short trip to the mall. The girls enjoyed a ride on their train, and after that we called it a day and went back to Grandmom's for the night.
