A Fun Way to Cross Train

Ice Skating.

Finally! Minnesota is having some decent weather. Yesterday, we decided to have some quality family time and do an outing. We have a great skating area not too far from our house and we took advantage of this nice winter day.

This was EFK's first time on skates.
I got a double workout from hoisting him up after he would fall.
Diva leading Chubby Hubby around the ice.

#1 caught on quick. This is only his 2nd time on the ice.
HOT! Nothing is more sexy than rented skates
Diva loved the ice. We had to keep her from licking it.

My legs are definitely feeling it today. If winter could be like this all the time, I wouldn't mind it so much. Today it is raining and just kind of dreary. I am glad we got out when we did.

This week we are on week 2 of Couch to 5K.

Great pics and looks like a fun day by all!

looks like the kids had a blast! I guess you're sending the showers north to us, better than the cold and snow!

I am envious that you get to skate outdoors. I always wanted to do that when I lived there (in MN) but no one else wanted to go with me.

We skate indoors at a rink in CA. My son (5) loves to "race" with me; it encourages him to skate just a little bit further.

Glad you were able to get out with your family. :>)

That looks like a blast. What good times. I wish I had a pink snow suit. Sun can do wonders for the mood, I swear.

That looks like so much fun! Jones can ice skate, but Shoo can't and I can barely stay upright, so we don't get skating very often...

Looks like COOOOOLD fun! I can't believe you wear jeans to skate. I think I'd have on waterproof sumthin' to keep out the cold.

Yes, I am a cold weather wimp and have NO idea what to wear when ice-skating outdoors.

that does look like fun cross training. i have often tried to pass off sex as cross training. the wife doesn't fall for it either.

Tammy said...

That looks like so much fun! All we have around here is slop and mud... no more ice.

Marcy said...

OMG!!! DIVA LOOKS SOOOOO STINKIN CUTE!!! I love it!

Those rental skates remind me of the rentals you'd get while rollerskating LOL

The weather looks great, and what a fun family activity!! Baby diva looks so adorable (in both pics). And looks like you may have a future hockey player on your hands- look out!
