My high school friend Valerie had her 40th birthday today. Yesterday, for her party, she rented a skating rink.

That was a blast from the past. There was music from the 80's that we all remembered. We skated, we ate, we had a load of fun.

Kayla learned to skate, and by the end of the party she was doing okay. One of her falls involved smacking her chin on the step. That left a mark.

Tatiana only fell once, and Melissa fell two or three times. Even Eri fell once. I managed to get away unscathed, although I had a couple of close calls.

Maybe this is the exercise activity I've been looking for. I'm sure sore today.

Happy Birthday, Val!
