Ice Skating In Bryant Park

This morning Freddy T. and I headed out early with Jack to take him ice skating for his first time. We decided to go down to Bryant Park since the rink opened at 8:00, quite a bit earlier than the others. It was fun being out with Jack doing a "big kid" activity. I think Jack had a good time over all. I don't think he liked not feeling in control of his legs. We went around the rink a handful of times, but his legs were so wobbly. It was hard to explain to him what to do. Finally on the last lap or so we went really, really slow and he seemed to make some improvement. He was ready to go home a littler sooner than we hoped, but he did a good job trying. Afterwards he got a big donut to eat and wanted to go out in the park to eat it,then we headed to a near by place to enjoy a little brunch. It was pretty cold out there this morning, but the sun was shining and it really was beautiful and fun being surrounded by all the snow!

They would not let us take pictures on the ice, so here are a few before and afters.

Jack, that looked like more work than fun. I bet your little legs are sore today. You were a trooper to try and I know that one day you will conquer ice skating. Hang in there. I love you, Great Gran
