I grew up going to Classic Skating all the time! I remember in 6th grade when they took us on a field trip to Classic Skating and I was super excited. My mom encouraged me to learn how to roller blade at a very young age and I’ve always loved it! I didn’t realize that my son, who is only 2, would love roller skating!!!
Last week, we went to Classic Skating family activity planned by our ward’s elders quorum. We had a blast! It made me really happy to see that Micah loved being on wheels. 🙂 He went around the rink like 8 times!
They’ve remodeled the place a little since I’ve been there but they still do things like “wipe out”, “snowball”, “blackout” and “train”. It sure brings back old memories!
After a while, Micah insisted on rolling by himself.
Our little Quentin bear just had fun looking at the lights. During blackout it seemed like we were at a rave or something! LOL! No, we didn’t take babies to a rave. It was just Classic Skating.
One thing that has changed is that I didn’t know they allow little kids to bring in strider balance bikes. They also let us have strollers on the rink! LOL! Our family definitely rolls in style. And yep, we used our own converted single to double stroller.
In The Family Proclamation it says that “Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.”
As, a family we definitely try to work hard to keep our house in order and keep up with our studies but we also play hard too! Going to classic skating sure was a lot of fun and it was a good family/ward bonding activity.
What kind of wholesome recreational activities does your family like to do?

I roller skated every Saturday morning when I was a kid (4 wheels). When I was in my early 30s, my Laurel class convinced me that we needed to go roller blading for an activity. There was a big roller blading park in Mesa, AZ where we were. My hubby went with us (as you know we had to have Priesthood there). I put on the roller blades but I never let go of his arm! My one and only attempt! These are great photos. Looks like you all had a great time! 🙂
Really?! I thought roller skating was so much harder than roller blading. Good thing for hubby!
Lots of fun. I remember really loving skating as a kid. I was perhaps “average” at it, but it was just great. No real places for skating for my family where we live, but many historical sites. We made many family trips back to history by visiting these places–O.K. perhaps a trip or two too many for some of the children.
Haha. We love history sites…. Road trips are like what all the Americans do lol! Other ppl think we are crazy.
That’s a great idea for a family activity! We have a roller skating rink close by us which I’ve taken my older kids to – but I always thought my youngest one (4 yrs) was too young. You just proved me wrong, and I think it would be a fun activity for our whole family. Thanks for the inspiration! Great pictures! I especially love the ones with your husband pushing the stroller and skating!
Ya! I honestly can’t believe how young kids can start to do things like this. Let me know how it goes if you choose to go skating sometime! 🙂
