Samantha enjoyed her 1st Skating experience on Sunday. Auntie Debra, Doug and I took her to Mahoney State Park to skate. We planned on just letting her skate in her snow boots, but they wouldn't let her onto the ice without real skates on. And Samantha really wanted to skate. So, we put on the smallest skates they had (size 9 and she wears size 7). It didn't seem to stop Samantha. Doug & I pulled her around the ice one time and she smiled the entire way around. She was soooo happy!! We basically had to pull her arms off in order to keep her upright, but she didn't seem to care. We stopped after 1 time around she got mad, so we went around 1 more time and she was still really happy and smiley.
