There is a new Dallas Stars Ice Skating Center in our neighborhood that opened about 3 weeks ago. I went with my friend Haley today to take the kiddos ice skating. We set up a tour through our mom's group, and so they took us all around the facilities first. Kirsten even got to sit on the Zamboni. As you can see from the look on her face, she was a little frightened by it.
I was really surprised when after the tour, they helped Kirsten put on her skates, taught her how to walk in them, and stand up from a sitting postion. Then we headed to the ice and both instructors came with us. Since only Haley and I had come, we each got one of the instructors, so Kirsten basically has a 45 minute private skating lesson. She was a natural!
They even taught me how to skate - I never even fell down. We had so much fun!
Here is a video of Kirsten being taken around the ice super fast with her teacher.
We had such a good time that Jeremy is going to take her again on Saturday while I am at Super Saturday at Church. We now have a new Saturday family activity to add to our arsenal.
