Ice Skating & NICU

Last week we had a couple of new adventures. We went back to the hospital where the boys were born for a visit. It was the first time we were voluntarily back since they were born (4 years). It was great visiting with the NICU staff and nurse practitioners and for them to see how great the boys are doing now. They were all amazed at how well they are doing since they were so sick when they were babies. The boys really didn't know what to think, they just played with the fish tank and ran around. We explained to them what we were doing and who the nurses were, but they were more interested in the fish. But all in all it was a great visit.

After that we went to Discovery Green to go ice skating! It was an interesting and very fun afternoon outing! After ice skating we had hot chocolate and played on the playground for a while. Lots of fun and family time.. The boys LOVED it. I was surprised that they did, I totally expected them to whine and cry when they fell and got wet, but they didn't they were having so much fun. It would have been a great submission to America's Funnies Home Videos! It was also Ryan's first time to ice skate. He did very well and did not fall, of course we all were wall huggers, but for the experience it was great family fun!

They also have a smaller ice rink for little kids 4 and under where they spent most of their time. They could hold on tho the sides and scoot around without the worry of the big kids knocking them down.

And of course they were very interested in the "ice lawnmower" machine
