My Aunt Marcie, who has been here visiting for the past week, initiated a family roller skating night this past Thursday. She has been on the East Coast, where skating is apparently the cool thing to do. I laughed at her at first, not thinking she was so serious, until they actually planned the skating night!
I have never been good at roller skating, and I honestly have not been skating in 10+ years. I’ve only gone a handful of times in my life. I knew it wouldn’t be pretty, but I was willing to try it. Ryan was also here this past week and was up for it too. Good thing I’m feeling a little more comfortable in my skin as a 23 year old! Or at least around my family who know me quite well by now. ;o)
So, Ryan, his Mom, my Mom, my brother Steven, my Aunt Marcie, and I went skating. For the first time in 10…20…30 years. There were a few show-offs among the group and some more cautious skaters. But we won’t mention any names! hehe. Oh and thank goodness we had the rink to ourselves on a Thursday night – that could’ve been embarrassing.
The fun part is, we filmed the hilarity and I made a lovely little video for you to see. Go ahead and laugh…I did too!
P.S. – It’s ironic that I just found some of the CUTEST skates while browsing Pinterest.
