We left late afternoon last Thursday to go to my parents' home. We had a grand time hanging out, going on a few adventures, watching the Olympics, and visiting with friends and, of course, family. Here are a few pictures of our trip:
There is a man in Midway that creates these "ice castles." They are so beautiful and amazing and artistic. Wow.
Friday afternoon we went ice skating at the Midway Rink. Well I didn't ice skate. But both boys did. We were amazed that 1. Miles wanted to and 2. He didn't give up right away after falling down. Not that Miles is a quitter. I think he is more of a perfectionist and doesn't like it when he can't do something perfect right away. He actually had a good time.
Jonas has been wanting to ice skate ever since we went last - but this time we were able to get more size-appropriate skates. He did not want Ben to help him at all - he wanted to do it all by himself. And he did. He wasn't skating mind you, just walking and scooting around. For over an hour. He loved it and was very proud of himself. So cute.
Emmy actually went on the ice for a little bit, too. It's just a little too hard for her, though, I think.
But it was a great trip and we miss it already. 5:30 came a little earlier this morning. . .
