Ice skating and falling with style

Dave surprised us last Friday night and told us he wanted to take us ice skating. It had been on our thoughts to do it since the Olympics and since our friends, The Schwartz's, went and had a great time. We had a blast. For those that do not know, Dave played ice hockey for a number of years so ice skating comes so naturally to him but for the rest of us, not so much :). This was the first time we ever took Andrew and Kira and I must say I was thoroughly impressed with both of them but especially Andrew. Personally I think the progression of his pictures below speak wonders :) (sorry some of the pictures are darker, it was Fri night skate so it was like the good ol' days with the lights low and the music playing).
Kira on the other hand, well, we'll let the pictures speak for themselves too :) As you can see in the one pic, Dave decided it was easier to drag her than for her to skate - haha. No, in all honesty, she did really well. Hopefully next time we'll be able to get her to move her skates more than a 1/2 inch at a time :)
And for me, my norm for ice skating still holds true - one fall, and then I skate like a pro - haha, well maybe not quite like a pro. Maybe next time Dave will take a few of me ;)
