Seventies Summer: Rollerskating

When you were a kid, did you go rollerskating? 

Man, we did! My parents would load us and all of our friends up in our station wagon and off we’d go.

Talk about some good sports! Can you imagine hauling 10 kids 20-40 miles to the nearest town that had a skating rink? 

Yesterday my husband, Little Bit, and I went skating. I felt kind of bad that we didn’t get to go in a station wagon, but we made do! 

We weren’t the only ones who had our eyes set on a Saturday afternoon of trying to stay upright on wheels. The parking lot was packed and there were families everywhere. 

At first, I wasn’t going to skate, but I could hardly stand it! Before I knew it, I was lacing up skates myself.

All 3 of us were pretty wobbly, but we had the best time! The music had a good beat, the disco balls were spinning, and they even turned on the lights for a game of the hokey pokey! 

Now I understand why mom and dad always took us rollerskating. It’s a pretty inexpensive way to get out of the summer heat, spend time as a family, and it is oh, so fun!
