We couldn't resist opening day at The Pond at Bryant Park yesterday.
Both girls were on single blades this year. Lolly did so great, MUCH better then last year. She fell a lot when she got distracted by expert skaters doing tricks in the center, and by any groups of TEENS, but in general did great.
The music seemed to be a range of 70's. Loved hearing non-Christmas Karen Carpenter: We've Only Just Begun (reminded me of singing that in my 5th grade play!).
We only got around the ice about twice before it was time for Zamboni:
Tired girls after a few hours of skating. I was tired too. I am so grateful for my new skates. My ankles are much less sore this year, because I have a better-sized boot.
Looking forward to continued mild weather so that we can get our skate on some more!
