We got Addie roller skates! I learned about a local roller-rink that has mommy & me skate sessions on Fridays. You can bring strollers and skate around with your little ones. Sean and I used to go roller skating all the time before Addie was born and I really miss it. So I was really excited to learn about this rink.
We can't fit the double stroller in the car which means I can only put one of the girls in the stroller. I figured Charlotte is a little too young to learn how to skate, so that meant the responsibly defaulted to Addie.
Addie is usually REALLY cautious about everything. It takes her a long time to try anything new. So I thought the suggestion of getting her roller skates would be met with the usual, "no, no, no!!!" We showed her a few YouTube videos to prepare her and then headed off to the store. Surprisingly she was very excited and couldn't wait to put them on. Even after she fell down she pulled herself back up and was ready to go again. We had a hard time getting the skates off of her to pay for them! Hopefully in the next week or so I'll have some pictures from her first trip to the rink!
