Ice Skating in the Snow

There is an ice skating rink that opened recently in Zac’s old neighborhood.  The rink is in Canal Park and has a restaurant right near it called Park Tavern.  We had been waiting for a good weekend to go but it always seemed like we were busy or when we weren’t the weather was bad (raining, cold, etc).

Watching the Olympics inspired us a bit, so we planned to go Thursday or Friday this week.

With the 8-12 inches of snow projected for the DC area beginning Wednesday night we figured people would be staying in so it would be a good idea to take advantage of that and go to the rink Wednesday night instead.  We called them to double check that they would still be open and they said they were!

I hadn’t been ice skating since maybe 4th or 5th grade when I would have gone with Girl Scouts.  It took a little while to get the hang of it again and I stayed by the wall in case I needed to catch myself.
