My parents let us Danley kids try a variety of extracurricular activities growing up. Except horseback riding. I wanted to and they said no. Then Kathleen came along and they broke down and drove her an hour every Saturday to ride horses. She could argue that they loved her more but perhaps they valued her life less?! HAHA, just kidding redhead! Aside from horseback riding lessons, we got to do some pretty cool things. One of them being Ice Skating. I don’t remember how long we took lessons but we all really enjoyed them. My parent’s even bought us our own beautiful white skates one Christmas. This past Sunday, we tried out all our old skills. Then on Monday, we all took Advil all day. It was a good time nonetheless!
Marcus needed a walker to start out…Thankfully Thomas helped him out & convinced him to skate without it, holding his hand ;)
My dad & the former horseback rider, herself
My camera had a love affair with this lil man’s face
My mom did nothing but skate around & look really, really cute. Emphasis on the really.
Then we had a little girls photoshoot
Marcus & I also practiced our ice-dancing. And tried our best to make epic-falling faces.
Here is Marcus..practicing his moves solo
I needed to brush up on my skating backwards trick. The only thing I still know how to do from all those lessons.
Well, I wish I could show you our awesome ice dance routine but it mostly looked like this..
Go ice skating y’all! Take a camera with you! Be prepared to call out sick the next day!
