Just Skating Around

     Around Christmas Time ALV, LES, and I decided to take advantage of the outdoor ice rink in downtown Pittsburgh.  I have lived in Pittsburgh for over five years and have always wanted to go ice skating there, but for no reason at all, have not gotten around to it.  I am so mad at myself for missing out all these years because it was so much fun. 

          I probably have not put on ice skates in 10 plus years,  it was a shaky start, but after a while I was able to do triple axels   stay balanced pretty well.  ( Just like riding a bike...right?)

   I cannot get this picture to turn, but it was so neat skating around Christmas time with all of the decorations and Christmas music, it really put me in the spirit. 

   I forgot how much I enjoyed ice skating, this will def. become a yearly tradition. 

When was the last time you ice skated?


  1. In NYC just before Christmas...it was SO much fun and I can't wait to go again! Great pics! xx

  2. How fun! I haven't ice skated since college, but it is so much fun! OKC has an outdoor rink and I've been dying to go!

  3. I didn't even know downtown Pittsburgh had a skating rink in the winter. I go ice skating every year in Detroit and love it. It's such a unique experience going skating outdoors in the city. xo

  4. These are great pictures! I have been dying to go ice skating! I love your jacket!

  5. looks like fun! I'm horrible at ice skating, everyone laughs at me!

  6. I have only ever done it once in a rink and never let go of the bars along the edge!! This looks so beautiful though at Christmas time, I would make it a tradition for sure :)
    Have you been to Central Park and skated? I see it in movies all the time, I want to go there so bad one day!!
