Festibond 2011 – Date with Daddy

Today on my date with dad for Festibond we went ice skating and we went to lunch. I had a great time.

First we went ice skating at the Portland Ice Arena. They only take cash but dad only had two dollars in cash so we had to find a ATM machine. It was hard finding a ATM machine. We had to walk a long way to find a ATM machine and it was cold. ‘Fun’ can not possibly be the correct word for finding a ATM machine. When we found a ATM machine we went back to the ice skating rink and rented some skates.

Once we got on our skates we went out onto the rink. I held my dad’s hand tightly so I wouldn’t fall. Daddy seemed to just be pulling me around the ice so I was just gliding around. I enjoyed ice skating a lot. I asked dad many questions about hockey, like where they put the net, if he played hockey as a kid, and if he ever saw his friends fall on the ice while they were playing.

The skates weren’t very good, because in some parts they squeezed my feet and some parts they didn’t. I got a blister because of it. We decided next time we rent skates we’re just going to buy me good skates.

After the ice skating rink we went to On The Border. I ordered the Mexican Dinner, but the taco was too spicy. So dad ordered me the cheese quesadilla. I had a good time talking to dad about what I thought of homeschooling, how I would describe Jenna and Skye, and how much fun we had on our date. A free sundae comes with every kid meal, so I got the vanilla ice cream with caramel syrup, whipped cream and a cherry. It was good.

Dad carried me around in and out of the ice skating rink and On The Border because I had the blister. He’s very generous. I love going on the date with him.
