Wordful Wednesday - Ice Skating in Florida

Yes, you heard me right...ice skating in Florida!! Since we are having a chilly day here in Florida (chilly means 60 degrees-- don't hate), I decided to do my Wordful Wednesday about our ice skating adventure.

At one of our local universities (it's actually the college that Joe attended), they had an indoor/portable ice-skating rink set up so that all of us warm-weathered Floridians could get a taste of cold-weathered living!! :) Joe has never ice-skated before, so I got to take Angie out and teach her how to skate....well, what that means is that I held her hands and pushed her around the whole time.
When we first got on the ice, she had her share of slips and falls....although she never actually hit the ice because I would hold her up. And yes, my back was k-i-l-l-i-n-g me the next day!!

But once she got the hang of it, she thought she was hot stuff!!!
Even though once we walked out of the tent it was 80 degrees, it still felt like a "winter wonderland" (code for: Christmas should be icy and cold) while inside!!

I hate ice skating! I used to always make my husband skate with the girls when they were little. Looks like you guys had a great time.

I'd say walking out of the ice skating rink in to 80 degrees sounds about right.

No sore bum huh? Lucky. That was my one and only experience skating as a teenager, falling real hard on my bum. But on the flip side my friends cute big brother helped me up andskated by us the rest of the time.
