If you knew how old my kids are, you'd probably think it's sad that my kids have never been rollerskating before.  Luckily someone invited us to a rollerskating birthday party this morning, and BFJ and I found that Skate City has not changed in twenty years.  I think some of the laces on these skates may be that old, too! 

  We were amazed how well The Bruise did, here he is out in the middle by himself. 

I haven't meant to be so neglectful of my blog.  I like to blog, and I love reading your comments.  However, everyone in my house has been sick at least two separate times in the past two weeks.  It has not been fun.  Also, I spent two hours last night listening to a "half-hour long" presentation on what is apparently the world's best vacuum.  The kids thoroughly enjoyed that, though, and what else is Friday night for but fun family time.  At ten o'clock, I finally had to step out and put the kids to bed.  The Bruise went down crying between sobs, "...but I didn't get to see the last tool on the Blue Max."

Hope everyone is feeling better.

Only 2 hours? I had to endure a 3-HOUR long one last fall. Never again, no matter who the friend is that needs one more presentation to get her free accessory. No way.

Haven't been rollerskating in years--far too many to mention! DD actually did some competing when she was 7, but eventually dropped it. Wonder how long it's been since she went? I'll have to ask her.

I hope the sick bug has left your house finally!

I used to love skating parties when I was little. I must have had a skating birthday party several years in a row. It looks like you had a blast!

Your vacuum story made me laugh! Love the skating shoe picture - very clever. Looks like you had a great time!
