Hubby and I and our friends Kim, Joanna and Miss M made our way out to Richmond Olympic Oval yesterday to go ice skating.
Miss M had been sick all day, but she was so excited to be going skating at an Olympic venue, she desperately wanted to go. So away we went. Miss M was fine, until we pulled into the parking lot, and then she sick in the car. But she still wanted to go.
Good thing Kim, Joanna and Miss M brought their own skates. The line up to rent was huge. An oval staff member said the wait was about an hour! I know it was longer. Hubby and I waited for a whole 5 minutes, when we left the oval an hour later, the family in front of us was still in line.
Our friends hit the ice for a couple of laps, by then Miss M was exhausted.
I borrowed Joanna's skates and took a spin around the ice. A very slow spin. Hubby chose to stay off the ice and be the official photographer.
