Wow...a real rollerskate rink. Can't find those anymore around where I live. I am glad rollerskates are back in. I had wanted a pair for myself for ever, but when I had decided to finally buy a pair 6 years ago, only three stores carried them in a VERY large metropolian area. I ended paying almost a $100 for them. But I am glad I did it. My daughter and I have a great time with her on her bike and me on my skates. Now, if we could only find a rink.

Looks like fun!

I went skating in a rink once. It was one of the funnest things I ever did. You can seriously pick up tons of speed. Hint, do NOT wear floor length skirts when you go skating. Below the knee is good enough.,

omg look that's me! that's me as a baby! ok not, but it's my baby sister. What a way to start winter break. It was awesome. Also, that was my first time actually getting rollerblades in a rink, and i think i did quite good, scooting around with the PT there. She actually got to pick up a fair amount of speed by the end of the day, so we were almost at least at normal walking speed (wahoo).

There is a skating rink not too far away from me. I have been playing around with taking the kids, these pix may be the thing that puts this over the top.

Just so you all know I cannot skate AT ALL. I can't keep my feet facing the same direction. Mrs. B. took the kids (and the pictures).

Fun! Great pics!

The only place I can remember ever roller skating was in Milwaukee at (probably) that rink, with the WITS shabbaton every year.

Nice pics!

Where did you get skates instead of blades??? I don't think my kids have even SEEN those kind of skates!

I used to attend skating parties regularly in elementary school. I could not build up any momemtum or even stay on my feet for significant amounts of time until the sound system played something from a John Williams movie score. Then I was off and flying.

OK, so I'm a geek. No news there.

I could never skate at all, but when rollerblades became popular I suddenly found my coordination. I wonder if I could use the old-fashioned kind now, or ice skates...

My ankles don't like rollerblades or ice skates--I need the support of the side-by-side wheels. 30cal, you're a brave one. :)

Nice pictures. Looks like a good time was had by most :), Abba being absent.

30 calorie: You're a good brother.

By the way, why'd you pick the name 30 calorie? Is it some new hip teen slang thing that I'm too old to appreciate? Is it part of the latest way-too-thin fad with girls? Are other teens calling themselves "low fat" and "ipecac"?

Once again setting the record straight:

1. The doc was on call, and also, he would not have fit in the car. There will be a post on my site about the car issue, hopefully including pictures. The short story is that my FIL is in better shape than my car.

2. Jack - I didn't think the PT would skate, I thought she would put on skates, hate it, and I would be babysitting her the whole time. Actually, she loved it. She skated the whole time and would have kept going when the others wanted to leave. So the point is - Go for it.

3. Beanie - Boy are you on the wrong page baby. My son doesn't know what a calorie is, and the calories clearly have never heard of him. I think he is referring to a 30 caliber something. See, if you played more Call of Duty, you would know these things.

Little Challa learned to ICE skate recently - maybe you should try introducing the PT to THAT concept.
Dear Tuesday (Imma),
In case you don't recall, at least the three oldest of us had in-line skates (rollerblades), and I remember at least two pairs of side-by-sides (rollerskates) around the house, one of which had a small troll heads on the front (I remember skating down the hall on Nottinghill Road with them) and the other pair I remember Joey using. And one time in Boston I attended a birthday party at a roller rink, but I brought my own rollerblades. Mainly I remember that occasion as the first time I ever like pizza from Zatar's.
