On Monday, we went to the local ice arena to skate with the boys. Since they have been walking less than a year, we weren't about to put them in skates. So, I rigged up a couple of laundry baskets with rope, and we pulled the boys around the rink. It was a lot of fun for the boys and a great workout for Gina and I. We were also among a handful of parents who actually skated on the ice. Most of them just wore their sneakers or snow boots, but I actually felt much more stable on the skates. After watching a special on 60 Minutes about concussions the night before, I wasn't taking any chances. Here are some pics and video of the event.
