Ice skating at North Park

Standard

This post is a bit late but last weekend the older kids attended a fun church sponsored activity. It is an annual event that the kids always enjoy but this year I think it was even more appreciated by my oldest children. It had been a busy and emotional few days with Ozzie’s move-in and I think they all needed a little down time away from two high energy little brothers. The kids were able to each invite one friend to join them so they picked their friends, the Hudaks. We left the house at 3:00 and arrived as the activity was starting at 4:00. This is one of the most popular events of the year for the youth at church and this year was especially well attended. The kids gathered together for an opening activity and “get to know you” games before they headed out onto the ice. It was a bitterly cold night but that didn’t deter many from braving the cold and lacing up skates. I was grateful I could watch from inside a warm building, leaving only for short periods of time outside to get some photos. The kids skated for a couple of hours and had a lot of fun. When the cold got to be too much they came back inside for dinner. Hotdogs and sides were served.  After dinner the kids played board games and caught up with friends. This activity is for youth 12 and older so this was Rusty’s first year attending and he enjoyed it as much as the girls always do. It was a wonderful night. On the way home I had the pleasure of being serenaded by the four girls as they sang along to the FROZEN soundtrack. It was an appropriate choice for the weather that night. 🙂

Here are some photos from our fun night of skating…
