Second Saturday Fun

This past Saturday, the littles went roller skating for the first time. We took advantage of an online offer that emails me two free skate passes per child each week. (Looking at the site, many skating rinks across the nation participate in this summer program, so it's worth looking into if you have a local skating rink in your neck of the woods.)

We invited two of our favorites to join us, Diana and Sophia!


Chloe and Sophia are only about a year apart in age and they get along so well. Look at these two silly girls!


We also got a mini-group shot minus Diana. (Someone had to take the picture:))


Chloe was pretty shaky, but she tried her hardest to keep up with Sophia.


All by herself! (Don't worry, we tied the lace.)


Evan made it onto the floor a few times as well, but he needed a little more assistance, so I didn't get any pictures of him skating.

Afterwards, we drove by the house to see if Chris wanted to join us down at the Riverfront for Second Saturday. Last year Montgomery City began hosting a Second Saturday Festival which begins in April and ends in September. There are usually local vendors there and they have some sort of event. It's really a nice family outing.

We met back up with Diana, Sophia, and some new friends. The kids couldn't wait to play on the Splashpad.


We cooled down with some ice cream. Can you tell that the littles enjoyed it?!

 
Check out all these silly faces!
 
 
We stayed a little later than our friends and enjoyed the concert in the amphitheater that evening. The littles got up close and personal. See if you can spot them. This is our version of "Where's Waldo?"
 
 
It was such a fun day. We were so exhausted by that evening and slept-in the following morning. Chloe slept until 10 o'clock the following morning, which is unheard of for our early bird. Surprisingly, Chloe and Evan really enjoyed roller skating and they can't wait to try it again. We may try to go again this weekend, but I'll make sure that we wear shorts/pants with a little more padding:)
