Last night we stepped back into time at Rollerland for the boys first ever skating experience.
I am not kidding when I say that the roller skating party has not changed one bit since we were attending them some 25 years ago. They are still serving the same cardboard pizza and the kids are wearing the exact same brown and orange skates.
I guess if it ain't broke why fix it.
The boys both enjoyed it, but don't let the pictures fool you they tightened up the skates so they barley rolled allowing them to "skate" or perhaps more accurately, walk with skates on, without too many tumbles.
One roller rink veteran decided he had better show the boys how it was done. I am confident the memory of the wind in his hair during speed skating and the lull of Red Red Wine were at the forefront of his memory as he skillfully rounded every corner.
On the way home III suggested that perhaps he could have a skating party - a sure sign of a good time. But, for now it is back to 2009. Happy Birthday Brooklyn!
