Wordless Wednesday: Roller Skating

Sorry I’ve been missing Wordless Wednesday. Work is so busy Monday and Tuesday it leaves very little time for any blogging.

A couple of weeks ago, Fred and I took all of our kids roller skating and to laser tag. We had a really fun night and it’s so nice our kids get along! I mean, we’ve only gotten together with them a few times and we only hang out for a few hours at a time, but hey, I’ll take the good when we can get it. =)

And besides, who doesn’t love roller skating holding their boyfriend’s hand. Yea, I just went there!


lol Yea, that’s how Doodle’s night started. “Timber” But it didn’t deter him!

I loved that M.N. and Doodle were willing to try out racing for their age groups even though there were still working on their skills! I was so proud of them!

Yea, he didn’t make it more than 1/4 of the way around before he toppled over, but he got back in there the next time and made it half way around! You go fella!

Not to be outdone, Fred got in on the 18+ group. He made it around the entire rink! And yes, he went out the second time as well. lol Me, no way, no how! He’s actually a really good skater! He did a grand job of impressing me!

Now, Buddy on the other hand went around the rink ONCE! In the 3 hours we were there before they played ONE laser tag game, he went around one time! I mean, it was his choice because I was constantly asking him to go out, but he didn’t want to and not once did he complain that he had to stand around the entire time waiting for us. He’s a stinker for not skating, but I’m thankful he was gracious about the night.

But, the only time he went out was when Fred went with him! I really love this picture. I have one where Fred is only skating with Buddy as well, but I liked that M.N. joined them.

We had some dinner while we were there. And then the kids went to laser tag. Buddy took a bunch of pictures while we were sitting there. Why? I have no clue.

Evidence I'm skating[3]

You can see Doodle trying to catch up with me in the background. This was the only photo Buddy could get of me because he kept taking it after I passed him. It’s evidence that I skated, too. And, I’m happy to say, I’m the only one who made it without falling the entire night. lol I have to brag because I probably won’t be able to ever again. =)

Be sure to check out Full Time Mama and her WW post. I’m guessing there will be less words than this one.

Danielle Harper said...

Oh gosh I haven't skated since about 6th grade! Looks like you guys had a great time :)

Alesha @ Full Time Mama said...

Ah, I remember those days! That was THE thing to do when I was a pre-teen and we had the coolest place to go here.
Looks like fun for you guys! Glad Doodle stuck with it!! :)

I am a HORRIBLE skater. But it looks like you guys had a ton of fun!

I miss going roller skating. I wonder if there are any rinks around me anymore.

Alicia said...

What fun! I don't know if my family could handle that though. I know we'd all be on the floor all the time:) Grace-fulness isn't exactly our thing:)

Unknown said...

oh Mimi, that looks like SO much fun!!!!!!

My daughter wanted a bday party at a skating rink in Jan; but it's taking me a bit to save up for it, lol.

You are SO brave, I can't skate at all, well I can; but from the floor, lol!

Thank you for hosting WW, I have one on mine as well if you'd like to stop by ;)

Unknown said...

I love it! I love that you had a great time as a 'family', I love that the kids all get along, but I especially love that they got a pic of you skating! *glad you didn't fall!That would have made a great pic!!LOL!

Sarah Riffle said...

Looks like so much fun, we haven't been skating in a long time!

Stacie @ Staying Me said...

How fun! I've always wanted to be a good skater, but no matter how hard I practiced when I was younger, I just couldn't stay upright! lol Looks like you all had a great time!
