was the last time I heard these words, "All skate, skate slowly and carefully please, all skate." Do you know that they still say that?!? This weekend I took Caroline to the skating rink for her first time, and I took a trip down memory lane.

As a preteen and young teenager, I loved EVERYTHING about the skating rink.....Holding hands with a boy in a booth, Big Red, Pickle sickles, rockin music, dedications. I know all my fellow skating sisters are with me here. My favorite: the big round fountain like sink between the boys and girls bathroom. The sink is gone!!!!!! What a bummer.

Enough about me, Caroline had a great time at her skating party, although you wouldn't know it by the pictures. They were taken at the beginning of the party, when she was still warming up to the whole skating thing. She eventually got the hang of it, and I couldn't drag her away!

This was right after we put skates on.......she was scared to death!
Finally getting the hang of it........still too nervous to smile yet!
