Before we left for the states, we thought it would be fun to take the girls ice skating in our Downtown area. It's a really great and beautiful park and opera house near the big church square. The city erects this smallish ice skating rink every year. We got there at a good time because after about two hours it started getting really crowded.

|This was a common occurrence. Falling down.|
|The ice skating rink. I wish I would have gotten a picture of the fire warmers. Old terra cotta stoves spread about that gave off a lot of heat.|
|Zamboni. Didn't really do that great of a job and it took forever to freeze over, but it worked for the amateur skaters, right?|
A few videos of our excursion.
I got a kick out of these penguins for the kids. They were super heavy, the adults had to carry them onto the ice. I thought, I want one of those! haha.
You'll see the girls in a green sweatshirt (Xanthe) and a checkered jacket (Xoe). They're doing pretty well. This was after a few hours of falling. :)
They're doing really well, huh?! Great job girls!
This video is funny because Xoe actually took the camera on the ice and totally "ate" it. :)
|Don't know why Xoe's teeth are so yellow. They're not really that yellow (see picture before).|
