Iceskating Fevah

For Aubrey's birthday, she chose iceskating as the fun activity. Every other year we do a lowkey family thing for birthdays. They get to pick what we have for dinner, we have cake & icecream and they get to pick one fun thing to do. Since Joey is the skating pro and I had just had Ammon, he took Aubrey & Ella for an afternoon of skating delight:) Joey's parents were also able to come(and I even got to come for part of it-thanks Cyndi for swapping with me!) Ella was skating all over the place with no help. Aubrey was a little more unsure of herself and held Joey hand most of the time, but loved it. The kids had sooooo much fun that we signed them up for a month of iceskating lessons there(really affordable and even comes with a few free public skating passes-good deal!) Here are pictures of their super fun time last weekend...

Daddy & the birthday girl





Pink cheeks:)

They started lessons yesterday and here are pictures from their lesson and also from when Joey took all three of them to a public skate session. Cali did great too! Held on to Daddy and enjoyed the ride:) With only one lesson, Aubrey now can skate independently. They also learned spins and a few other cool moves. I'm so proud of them! Joey took lots of pics for me and video clips too. Its been a fun Saturday activity for Joey to have with the older kids. Gets em outta the house and gives me a quiet Saturday morning with the baby:)
