Roller Derby

When was the last time you were on roller skates??

Thanks to Emma's girl scout troop we discovered a roller rink in Purcellville. Emma had a blast at wanted to go as a family. She invited her best friend, Olivia, and we had a great time. The entire floor is wood and they have little party areas with tables and chairs or lounge areas with couches. You can just skate up to all of it and plop yourself down. I don't know if this is how Roller Rinks used to be, I can't say that I have ever been to one.

Clay started a little conga line with the girls, the other kids wanted to join too.

Do you know, this was my first time skating on "quad" skates. I never could figure out how to roller skate on "quads." It wasn't until my good friend Cathy showed me in-line skates that I finally learned. Do you remember when in-line skates came out?

I love that place in Purcellville! I think I went back before it was condemned, then they rebuilt it (if I am thinking of the same place). Anyway, back when Nate was preschool age, they kids brought their trikes and you could ride or skate. Fun!
