Family Fun Center Fun!

Last week we took the girls to the Family Fun Center to give roller skating a try for the first time.  I wasn't expecting success, but I thought they would have fun.   I was excited when we arrived that there was no one else on the floor skating.  I figured this would make it less intimidating for them.  Another bonus was that the center had a separate kids' floor that had rails the entire way around.  This was so great for them because even though they were scared, they could build up their confidence by holding onto the railing. 

As you can see in the above picture, their feet were trying to get away from them.  But despite the struggles and falls to the bottoms, they kept trying.
Pretty soon my oldest daughter got the hang of it and was crusin' around with her handsome Daddy.
After Roller Skating we headed over to the other side of the fun center for some mini golf, where Daddy beat us all (by a lot!).
Then it was off to the rock climbing wall where my  little dare devils kept climbing to the top and jumping back off.
The next stop of the fun center was the huge playground with the fun ball pit.
Next we headed over to get a little bumper car action.  Unfortunately, my youngest was big enough to drive a car, but she decided to take over the camera instead.  Not bad photos for a 4-year old.
We finished up the day at the fun center by letting the girls ride the virtual roller coaster.  They were both so excited and really felt like they were on a roller coaster.  There was laughter, squeals, and hold on tights throughout the ride.
All in all, it was a fantastic day that they are still talking about.  Do you have a similar Family Fun Center near you?   Is it a big hit with the kiddos?  Grab a latte, put up your feet, and join the discussion!

They all look like they are having SO much fun! I wonder if I could even get up on a pair of rollerskates anymore...... You have a beautiful family.
