Dakota wanted to go skating with her friend Kaylynn and so we went along. This is the first time Dakota has had on real skates instead of the kind that fit over your shoes and don't roll backwards. She did great for the first time out, kind of walking and rolling and then an occasional spill. I was proud of how well she did. Meanwhile Shiloh played in her socks out on the rink since it was not very crowded. She enjoyed all the lightst that sparkled and flashed on the flooring to the music. She also had a good time crawling and climbing all over the carpeted seats.
