Day at the Park

Today most of the family went to the park for a couple of hours. It was a beautiful, sunny day with a nice breeze. We met four other families from our homeschool group there. After eating lunch the kids played baseball, frisbee, soccer, some went roller blading and some drew with sidewalk chalk. It was a fun time. Amber went rollerblading with her friends Sammie and Maddy. She borrowed some rollerblades, knee, elbow, and wrist pads and a helmet. She had to put her rollerblades on 3 times before actually skating! First Amber put the skates on with out putting on the knee pads....which you had to have the skates off to fit your foot through the hole, she had to remove them a second time when she realized she put the elbow pads on her knees rather than the knee pads, and finally got everything on where it belonged, got the skates back on and went skating. She had 3 people helping her into her get-up. In the long run she had fun, and didn't hurt herself :-). There were not enough skates for Trey so he "walked" along with the skaters and helped pull them back up the hill.
