Skating and Sushi

Noam decided he wanted to go ice skating for our special day together. Last time we tried this, last year, he was less then thrilled once we got onto the ice. He said he was going to be brave this time, so off we went! 
While he was a bit anxious once we put skate to ice, he did so well! He slowly warmed up to being on the ice and tried to skate on his own, rather than me pulling him along. He "got even braver" post snack break and we made it off the wall! After an hour he was done, but very proud of himself. This year, fewer tears, next year - a single axel...?

After the skating date, we were off for sushi! This time, I upped the ante with sushi at Whole Foods which is served on a conveyer belt. He was beside himself with excitement, "what the what, we're catching sushi on a conveyer belt!" 
To add to the excitement, since it was Mardi Gras, we ate while a band marched around the store playing, Noam thought that was the coolest. Add to that he saw Abe Lincoln on a magazine and I bought him gummies, he had a blast!!

I love this special one on one time with my favorite four year old, I can't get over how grown up he suddenly is!

Heck, I could go for a date like that. We had mixed luck with the kids and skating, and sushi for that matter. This sounds like a memorable day, what an adventure.

The little skater is too cute! My son started skating early, and now at age 24, he still loves to ice skate. The sushi on the conveyor belt is priceless. I don't think our Whole Foods has that, but I wish! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm enjoying yours!
