I had off for New Years holiday on Monday and it was finally going to be a cold day, and I've been dying to take Ella ice skating, so seemed like the perfect opportunity. There is an outside rink downtown so we headed out for our ice skating adventure with high hopes!
I had visions of the two of us holding hands and skating happily around the rink. Ha! Ella did not like it. She was terrified of falling and got really upset that she couldn't do it, and ended up just kind of marching on the ice and holding me or the wall very tightly.
We went around the rink maybe 3 or 4 times and we both had enough - my back was killing from leaning over to push her around and she didn't want to try any more. I'm glad we tried it but I think we'll hold off on ice skating again until next year!
