I don't know about where you live, but small ice skating rinks are popping up all over around here. There is a new one in the town between where Lorelei lives and we live. So we headed over there Wednesday afternoon. The girls had the skating rink pretty much to themselves.
The buckets are great! Anna did not even need me to be out there with her and I got to chat with Michelle.
The only disappointment came when it was time to go. Lorelei lay down on top of Mia and they clung to each other and would not let go! Michelle and I were cold and hungry and not laughing! They miss each other and did't like that they only got to spend an hour together. Since two years old they have had a very special bond. But it can be frustrating!
