There is a 1st time for everything...

...and for Layla this past weekend, it was roller skating!

The below two pictures crack me up!!!!  When Layla's face screams "Weeeeeeee!!!!!  Fun times!!!!" Richard's face looks worried.  And when Layla looks worried.....daddy is all "Weeeeee!!!!!  Fun times!!!" 

So, it was probably most certainly somewhere in the middle.  It was fun.  But, let's face it - roller skating takes some skill.  And practice.  So after about 5 minutes of skating, it was then off to the...

Scooter races!  Ha.  I love that this rink let the kids bring in scooters or lil riders. 

I'll admit, roller skating did NOT come back to me as easily as I would have imagined.  I mean...I did roller skate almost every Friday and Saturday of my middle school years, for Heaven's sake!  Those pesky few years that snuck in between robbed me of my skills.  Those few years....hahahahaha!  Well that, and that lil boy you see in the pic.  He was out to destroy me!  I don't even know who he is....but he was hell bent on running me over.  Why!?!  I'd like to know too....

Of course Richard was all, "I am so cool.  Not only can I still skate fast and steadily, but I can also skate backwards and talk on the phone.  I am cool!"  What the hell!?! 

So.not.fair!  He has a free ride and I get to rally with this lil one...

I know you see my mad skills you see my feet!?!  I was turning around because I felt him on my heels...he was ruthless.  I am not lying.  He was having a ball, that's for sure!

Look!  He is patiently waiting....TO ATTACK ME AGAIN!!!!

Skating on...ha!  We were there to celebrate the 4th birthday of a dear friend, Miss Jacquelyn.  Isn't she just a lil doll?!  I love her to pieces. 

It was an ice cream social party.  And it was a hit! 

As were her sweet roller skates!  Lovin' the pom poms...

1-2-3-4....make a wish!!!!

Oh My Goodness!!!!! I LOVE this post, had me Rollin' (he he)
I love all the pics, especially the lil Sh!t boy! Ha ha, he does look like he is out to get you! He must have a crush on you :)
I use to Roller Skate in middle school too, oh the memories! I am pretty sure the few decades have diminished my skills! I could skate backwards too, barely :)
Looks like a fab party!!!!!
Hope you have a wonderful day Meli Love!

Hilarious! Maybe he was trying to get to Layla through her mom? A budding romance in the making? I know how you feel about Rich, Boyfriend did the same things when we went ice skating a year ago. It's. So. not. Fair. I love that the rink lets kids bring scooters, and that they have the support things for new skaters. Our local rink just made kids hug the wall for dear life as they skated along.
