I love it!
Last night, Anya and I went skating.Actually, she went skating.
I watched. They didn't have skates in my size.No...really!
Our new friends' church sponsored a free skating night at the rink...and there were TONS of people. So many, that they ran out of skates. Anya was lucky to get a pair that halfway fit.
Since I didn't have any skates, Heather's husband Chris took Anya around a few times to get her started...and then she TOOK OFF! The girl can skate! :)
After a few times around she ditched the 'walker' and tried it on her own.
I'm so proud of her.
Here are a few pictures of our evening...and for your entertainment pleasure I've included a video of something I'm SURE you don't see everyday...an ice skating cowboy.
He had the leather vest, flannel shirt, bandana around the neck, handlebar mustache and wide brimmed hat. The only thing missing were the Nocona boots...and I'm sure they were waiting for him in his locker.
And he wasn't the only one. There were no less than five cowboys out there gliding across the frozen water.
Some days I am convinced we are living on the set of a wild west movie. :)
