In Line Skates
Each Wednesday the kids and I try to have Vacation Wednesday. It's our 'carve some time for us' during the summer vacation whirlwind. Living on a ranch equates to lots of projects, emergencies and 'easily falling into a working rut'. If you recall, last Wednesday was no exception! We had a fencing project to start the day with. Hmmm.. I should take a photo of our handy work!
Well, we did manage to 'split the scene' and get at least 2 hours of fun in! The kidlets attempted some inline skating. What a chore that was! First, we drove to the Leo Adler parkway/walkway (we have no pavement out here). It's a cool path along the Powder River. Perhaps too narrow for lessons!
WE have lots of practice to do for these skates! WE, because I get to hold those two kids upright on the tricky stuff! Next time will be in a parking lot!
So there you have it Auntie Paula! We did it! Thank you for the awesome skates!
As you can see, Jake has a few balance issues to work out..
After the skates came the scooters... Definitely a faster mode at this stage of the game! Then came Charlies Ice-Cream in Baker City. I'll have to get some photos of our favorite hang outs!
