What has 16 wheels, smells faintly of blueberries and will almost always make your face hurt (from smiling)?

Vignette skating That would be Gwen and Maddy on roller skates, of course.   And the blueberry scent is their hair! 

As you might recall, Santa had a special request for roller skates this year and the kids have made pretty impressive progress with them!  Here's a little video from yesterday:  "Skating in the Park"

As usual, Gwen is the courageous one and fearlessly flies all over the place on her skates.  I don't think I've ever seen her fall.  Maddy, on the other hand, is very cautious and hates falling.  Something she must have quickly learned as a baby living in her foster family's home with some really threatening stairs!

Yes, we do have safety gear for our girls and, yes, we do actually have them wear it most of the time but you'd never know it by looking at these photos or watching the video.  So if you're itching to click the comment button and give me a lengthy and graphic head injury lecture, go ahead but it's probably not really necessary as we're very safety conscious around here.  I dare you to visit our home and try to find anything pointy enough to put your eye out.  We even use sunscreen.

PS:  By the way, if you've not already voted for M3 for this award, please take a half minute and do so.  She's now TIED for first place!
