Roller Skating

Overlook Skating Rink is not far from Chuck-E-Cheeses, so we had an hour to fill with another activity until the rink opened.

DSC_9175First we spent some time at one of the playgrounds. Of course Jared tried to climb outside the safety fence. 🙂

DSC_9186  I was impressed that there was the story of Noah’s Ark in this area. There were pictures on the other side of each story section.

DSC_9188After they tired of the sliding boards, we explored the walking area.

DSC_9194There were a lot of dogs and their owners in the dog park.

DSC_9197It was a beautiful afternoon for a walk.

DSC_9207Gloria thought this was a Frisbee field.

DSC_9223After the skateboarder left the inline and skateboarding area, the children spent a bit of time here until it was time to go inside.

DSC_9253Jesse was a bit unsure of being on roller skates, but did a great job.

DSC_9235The others knew what they were doing.

DSC_9247  I couldn’t use a flash inside the building, so the focus is a bit soft.

DSC_9260Gloria is preparing to give me a high-five.

DSC_9266Ian gave Jesse a hand for a bit. The restaurant area is in the background.

DSC_9267 I spent most of my time in there as it had a good view of the rink and I could keep the food and drink available for them.

DSC_9279They loved the competition of trying to go under the bar.

DSC_9290Then there were five – and Jared and Ian were still in the competition.

DSC_9292The first four touched the bar or the floor…

DSC_9293…but this guy made it! I don’t think it was the first time he won the competition. 🙂

They weren’t ready to go home – even after two hours of skating. I think we will be celebrating some more birthdays at Overlook.
