Normally on a Monday, I do a post about my menu plan. This week I just wasn’t in the menu planning mood, so I decided it will be a “fly by the seat of your pants” week with meals. You see the reason I wasn’t in to menu planning and grocery shopping is that we went ice skating yesterday with my son’s youth group. I haven’t been on skates since DH and I were dating. We will be married 15 years in May, so you can figure out the math. I was so sure that I was going to end up flat on my tush, and need several people or a crane to lift me back up if I did fall. Well, as it turns out, I wasn’t as rusty as I first thought. I did do a lot of wall hugging though, and there were 2 year olds skating rings around me as well. But the main thing is, we had a great time as a family, and I enjoyed every minute of it!
I thought I’d share some pictures with you. These are some of my favorites:
Youngest after his first go round. He looks exhausted.
DH and Oldest after their first go round. They look so cute together!
Me and my boys. Even though we are all on skates, my oldest is almost as tall as I am.
My 3 favorite men.
And you can’t go ice skating, and not have hot chocolate.
So this was just a peek into a Sunday afternoon in our end of the world. It was worth the sore muscles, scratched ankles, and multiple layers of clothing to spend quality time together.
What do you do as a family during the long winter months?
