Ice skating fun

I have recently discovered the lovely new linky over at Adventures of a Monkey Footed Mummy – Thankful Thursday. Just a place to link up and share what you are thankful for this week.

For me, this week is an easy one. I am thankful for the fact that my husband gets a 2 week break from work over the Christmas period. It has meant that while the children have been off school, we have been able to spend some time together as a family – and we have done all sorts. Board game and DVD days, shopping, winter walks, visiting family and friends – and today we have been ice skating. It was Gemma and Jacob’s first try at ice skating, and though it took them a while to pick it up, they were soon whizzing along, chasing each other and falling in giggling heaps. Absolutely perfect family time. I couldn’t ask for more. One item ticked off my Winter bucket list!

Max and I enjoyed watching them from the sidelines, and dispensing the hot chocolate and cookies to warm up with. This little bunch of people mean the world to me, and I have a lot to be thankful for.

    Lovely ice skating fun. My wee man keeps talking about it as he has seen so much of it but I don’t think he is quite old enough yet. We did manage to find lot of snow though and he settled for that!

    What lovely photos and it looks like they did very well for their first time! Here in Cornwall The Eden Project has an ice rink every winter that we often take the children to and have great fun. Happy New Year and here’s to family fun in 2014, thanks for linking up with Country Kids.
