Hannah and i have had the best day today! We went to Gunwharf Quays which is a shopping and entertainment complex in Old Portsmouth where they have laid an ice rink for christmas. Hannah had never skated before and really wanted to give it a try so we went along to see what it was like.
Well, she loved it!!!! She started off using one of the little penguins to help her, and then started skating on her own! I've always been really nervous of her skating, it seems so scary (hence making her wear her helmet- i am that mother lol), but i'm so pleased i took her, she had such a good time.
First time on the ice.
Skating by herself.
Of course Lanie had to skate too!
After skating we wandered around the christmas displays.
And then went to Starbucks for hot chocolate and eggnog lattes.......yum!
We did manage a little shopping, well Hannah did, she got a new winter coat in Gap, before rushing home in the dark to put the chickens to bed!
