After the Seahawks got their asses handed to them on a platter today, Karma and I took the kids ice skating as a consolation prize. Only two of them had ever been before; Karma and I weren't first timers, but we couldn't count back that far trying to remember how many years it had been. We ended up having a blast, even if everyone's ankles are burning tonight, and Jack has a blister the size of a silver dollar on his foot. There was a fair amount of laughter mixed with pain and humiliation, although Brian kind of showed everyone up with mad skillz.
|Sydney, Shane, Jack, Brian, Matt and Elijah|
|and a LOT of this.|
|There was some of this...|
|Karma almost let go of the wall for a bit.|
|Jack kept trying to pull me down with him, |
but I was way too smart for him.
|and so did Syd...|
|except for when she was laughing at Shane.|
Who would have thought a day on the ice could cure all ills?
