BUST A MOVE!

If you've been following my blog for a bit, then you will know that we go roller skating alot! The kids love it, it has a great family atmosphere, it's cheaper than the movies, it's good exercise, and it has been around since I was in middle school! Well, you know the motto, "The more the merrier?" It's so true! 33 of us...yes, 33, included adults and children met up at Cal Skate last night (thanks to my hubby calling everyone) and we all had a wonderful time! Majority of the time I do not skate because I like to take pictures, but last night I did, and boy, my legs were burning!! I don't know if that's good or bad..LOL!

They said this picture represents little sisters with their older sisters!
My only other somewhat decent shot of the night. This is outside the rink when it was over. 9:30..too early for us!!!
And since it was only 9:30, and we all still wanted to hang out, we invited everyone back to our place. Most of them had to go home because they had to work the next day. But, that was okay, because we still had so much fun!! I made coffee, there was dessert, and we turned up our ITunes play list!! Now..mind you, we are all in our late 30's (some closer to 40..lol), so the old school music we like, is really OLD SCHOOL!! So..here's a short clip of our little "dance partay"!!!!! It's a little dark, but you can kind of make it out. And who said Christians couldn't have fun?? The night ended at 1am, and yes, us old folks can still hold our own! Here we are jammin' to Earth Wind & Fire! Oh..and that is my loud mouth you hear!!

How fun!!! I love the video I was cracking up. I love or should I say loved to roller skate, I had to quite about 4 years ago because we were with the kids roller skating and I dislocated my knee so since then I have not been on the roller rink.

Oh man I love roller skating. I started skating as soon as I could walk. My dad managed a skating rink for many years and that's where we spent our weekends. Too fun! Thanks for sharing! Its actually only been a couple months since i went skating. Ok, I will have to post some pics. In fact, go to my facebook..you'll see "Riverside pictures". Those are at the skating rink with my family! :) HUGS!

I love it when we get to show people that we aren't stuffy churchy people!! We ROCK, we ROLL, and in same cases... we Skate!! :o)

Melissa said...

you guys do know how to "partay"! :o)

I've never been roller skating, but it sure looks fun! Is it easier or harder than roller-bladding? I can't roller-blade to save my life!

Lisa said...

I like Earth Wind and Fire...lol What a great time. Roller skating is great exercise, I should do more of it but now i worry I will break a hip....hee hee hee

Tito took the kids to the ice rink today and guess who could skate. My 3 year old can skate, what has he done I swore I would keep the rest of my kids off ice it is too expensive for more than one player in the family.

I have never heard of him, but I do like his style. As for someone over 40...I think we forget that we can still have fun, it may shock our kids...but we are still alive and God wants us laughing!
