I've been promising Jackson since November that we'd go ice skating at MacArthur. Since this is the last week they're open, an after school adventure appeared to be my only option. He was sooo excited when we got there yesterday afternoon! It was his first time (and only my third) so it took a few minutes to get adjusted.
Poor Jackson fell down consistently about every ten seconds. Nonetheless, he did a great job and kept popping right back up. We spent about an hour and a half skating and falling and enjoying every minute of it. It was so fun to have a special afternoon with just "Jackson and Mommy". It brings back memories of the four years we had being buddies before Andrew joined the crew. So yeah, it was fun, but it was cold, and I'm more than happy to retire from skating rinks until next season!
Photo booth Jackson insisted upon doing (note to self = take photos before skating next time!)

Oh yeah - and he kept telling me that he "meant" to fall - he hates the idea of looking silly in front of people!
