I really wanted to take Ginger ice skating last year, but could not since I was pregnant. I had hoped that we could go sometime this winter and vacation in Wisconsin seemed like a good time to try it. Saturday, we went before the Packer game, just the two of us. She was SO excited! It was so special. Here is how she looked as we were getting ready.We got onto the ice and she noted that it was a little slippery! I held her hand and she held on to the wall. We went around a couple times before she started letting go of the wall. After that, she didn’t want me to let go, but she got faster and faster each time around. At one point, she said, “Mommy, I am not afraid to try new things!” It was so precious. I just loved that special time with her and she had so much fun! She wanted to keep going all the way until Public Skating time was over, so we did. I managed to snap a couple of pictures, but since I wasn’t holding her hand she wanted to hold the wall 🙂 I felt sort of crazy taking out my camera while ice skating, but I was by myself and I wanted to have a picture! We took a break at one point because I decided that my skates were too small (ouch). Then she decided that hers skates were too small also, and that she didn’t need her coat.
Oh, and I haven’t posted a hairstyle in a couple of weeks. This was a really quick and easy one, you could call it a top-knot with a pony tail. The inspiration comes from Mindy at cutegirlhairstyles.com. She has such great video tutorials. It is simply a section of hair on the top, rubber banded, tied into a single knot, gathered with the rest of the hair into a side ponytail.
