Twins on Ice

Ever since Christmas Eve, when we ice skated at the Hotel Del, the girls have been asking about ice skating and when they would be able to go again. Since we have taken a break from dance class we asked the girls if they wanted to take ice skating lessons, they were beyond the moon exited at the suggestion. I will have to say Daddy, Tony, was pretty darn excited too. Though on the day of the lesson Lola decided she didn't want to go. Ellie still wanted to go, so we told Lola it was okay that she didn't want to take the lesson and that she could just watch Ellie skate. After all, I guess it is time we get used to the fact that are girls, despite being the same sex and the same age, are not always going to want to do the same things at the same time. But to our surprise, on the drive up to the lesson, Lola proclaimed she had changed her mind and that she too wanted to skate. Tony and I were happy that we didn't push Lola to participate, but that she decided to participate on her own and from the permanent smile on her face for the full 30 minutes, I know Lola was happy she chose to take the lesson too!

Here they are ready to skate! 
They started with an "off ice" lesson from Ms. Jessica

Onto the ice they go! 
They started off holding Ms. Jessica's hands...
... but it didn't take long before they were NO HANDS on the ice. 



Look at these ladies... they were skating queens by the end of the lesson. 



Lola and Ellie couldn't stop talking about how much fun they had and we didn't get but two feet out the doors when they asked when they could go back again. 
Who would have thought!
