After wasting most of the day we decided to go to the Stake Ice Skating Social. We invited our friends Heidi, Justin, and Colbie and saw a lot of other people we knew there. It was a lot of fun, but cold. In fact, I think it was colder inside the building than outside. Things are starting to warm up here a little bit. Coming home it was a whopping 35 degrees. Not bad...not bad at all.
So I took this picture of Kember right before we left and bundled her up. I didn't think she'd enjoy this outing so I wanted a happy picture of her. She ended up loving it and didn't mind the cold until we were finished skating and just standing around talking.
The reason Dan looks a little funny here is because he was stopping to talk to some people. I have no idea why the picture is so bad. Our camera is dying a slow death and it's time to start thinking about a new one.
These little things are the greatest. Colbie and Kember just had a blast pushing it around the ice rink. They are really good there to let you push your stroller on the ice too. We buckled Caden in some random persons (a friend of a friend) stroller and everyone took turns pushing the babies around. We didn't skate long...maybe a half hour, and I skated even less, but it was a lot of fun, and I'm glad the stake takes the time and effort to put activities like this on.
So I'm ashamed to admit it, but I'm getting more addicted to Dan's gamecube than he is. We went over to a friends house for dinner and they had a game called Donkey Konga. It's like Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero only with drums (bongos). Anyway, I was hooked, and so with my Christmas money I bought the game and two sets of bongos. It finally came in the mail yesterday (took long enough...I've been waiting and waiting and telling my friends all about it) and it's a blast. We even let Kember and Caden bang on the bongos. I plan on bringing it to the Linford family reunion this summer to see how coordiated everyone is. That should be funny. Dan beats me every time! It's pretty sad that I have no rhythm, but it's still fun to play.
