Kate was invited to a Roller Skating Birthday Party 2 weeks ago and can I tell you...IT WAS SO FUN! Kate had never been roller skating before and I didn't know how well she would do. We got there, got the skates, had them tighten the wheels a bit so she didn't roll into a wall at full speed, and we put the skates on!!! Right away she started rolling around on the carpeted area. Got a little annoyed b/c the wheels didn't move enough. So, had to get one side UNtightened. Much better!
She started off slow but after a bit, MAN, was she flyin! Her friends managed to get her off the carpet and onto the rink. That lasted all of 3 minutes. After a hard landing on her butt, the slippery floor didn't appeal to her. So, the carpet was where she stayed. But it didn't slow her down. It was hilarious watching her and her friends. Skate, skate, fall...(and hard). Get back up, skate, skate, skate, FALL, get back up! Start all over! She had a blast and I loved watching her fly around at full spead. Now, she is asking for her birthday party to be at a Roller Rink. We have until March but I think it's a great idea! I used to LOVE going to the rink when I was younger and cool! (LOL!) I might just put on some skates next time we go!
Here are a few pictures of the Rollerskating Queen in action!
