Day Two: Rainy. Cold. Wet.
A good day to be indoors. Ice Skating!
Rules: Run to truck so you don't get too wet. Drive to rink. Jump out of truck and run inside trying to stay as dry as possible in downpour of rain. Don't want to be wet in cold ice skating rink. Put on skates and skate for two hours. Take off skates. Run to truck and again try to stay as dry as possible. Drive home. Jump out of truck and race into house vying for favorite hot cocoa mugs.
Possibilities: SM might put hot cocoa in blender which normally makes it taste even yummier. SM might put in too much possibly making mess all over kitchen as blender explodes hot cocoa all over.
More possibilities: Kitchen will be sticky mess if hot cocoa explodes.
More rain rules: Rainy. Cold. Wet.
A good day to be indoors. Movie watching and eating popcorn snuggling under quilts.
This is what happens when a Native grows up on roller blades. Ice skating is nothing. It comes naturally. Naturally..... I didn't grow up on roller blades. I look like an epileptic spaz when I try to skate.
These Natives make skating look too easy.
This Native spent the entire time dodging the camera.
Not this Native.
This Native. But don't worry. I get help later. You'll see.
He's adorable and he knows it.
So's he. Quite! Adorable!
Levi is smiling. I promise! Either that or he is grimacing because I am in his face.......
Mr. B joined our day of fun for day 2. He took over for a spell as you can see, helping Levi is hard on the lower back.
Remember that help I told you about? Helping me get Mr. C to look at the camera?
It ended in this. A tumble on the ice. Much laughter.
Mr. B and Mr. T trying to teach The Scout Master how to skate backwards. Fancy. I spent the entire time trying to stay upright going forward!
Endearing. Older brothers helping younger brothers. Melty mommy heart moment. Not too cool to be seen being an older brother in public.
More skating backwards. Show off!
This photo turned out funky. Mr. B is blurred to the left but I love how the center of the photo is of Mr. T and Mr. M holding and helping Mr. J. Did you get all that? All the Mr.s Lots of Mr.s around these here parts........
This is what I spent my two hours primarily doing. Reminded me of when I used to teach skiing. I spent most of my time skiing backwards watching my students. Question. Is the walker for me or Levi?
P.S. Hey Julie! Notice anything?? On my hands??? Some deliciousness.
I remember too well when this little one was learning to walk.........
Hanging onto walls and furniture much like this............. sigh............
