We went ice-skating in Ashland a few weeks back.
It was me, Ross, Cole, Annie, my sister, my Aunt Alicia and my little cousins (along with a couple of their significant others.)
Aidara (on the left) was one of those significant others and Chooch (second from the right) was the other.
That's my Aunt Alicia, with a couple of her kiddos in the background.
And that of course is my littlest (with my sister.)
Like her mama, she's a little haphazard on the ice and requires supervision.
My cousin Sammy.
Roscoe-T and his Aunt Lee Lee.
And Coley too.
Even though none of us are any good at ice-skating, we love it.
Probably because it's so much fun to watch people fall down.
Some guy to my left totally bit the dust right as I took that shot. (Don't miss my sister's expression in the background.)
But then some big bully (named Jesse Ray) always goes and spoils the fun by hurting one of our own. (He knocked his sister down hard enough to make her eyes well-up.)
And the whole thing seemed like a great photo opportunity to me, but then again, I'm lacking in social skills so what do I know?
Love you Shell.
My sister took the camera after that, but was kind enough to capture this little series of shots for me...
And I was kind enough to capture this litte series of shots for her in return...
And then some stranger was nice enough to shoot this one for us right before we called it a day.
And if you're reading this Josh Downs...Annie is insisting that she can't turn six until you get home because she wants you to be here for her party (and I'm thinking she just might be onto something.)
