Slip Sliding Away

Can you guess whose skates these are?
My pretty sister and my COOL (too cool for photos) nephew.
Marla's outfit is sponsored by Target and SpongeBob.
Reva is a fun Mom.
Jake watching the big kids play hockey.
Don't get any ideas man.
The peanuts.

What a fun, spontaneous day.  Reva took us to the community center for open skate.  I loved how the ice felt beneath my feet.  I wondered who came up with this idea.  Thanks to Google, I didn't have to wonder very long.


And check it out - MN is famous yet again:
"In 1914, John E. Strauss, a blade maker from St. Paul, Minnesota, invented the first closed toe blade made from one piece of steel, making skates lighter and stronger."

Way to go Mr. Strauss!
