The Schwartz's vs The Icecapades

Well with a random thaw out day in January with temperatures reaching a lovely 67 degrees, we set out with the rest of the population of Memphis to enjoy this beautiful weather at the zoo.  The line to get into the zoo parking lot looked at least 20 minutes long (we came in from the other entrance to avoid it) and ended up being directed to park in the "overflow" area which is apparently on the grass in Overton Park.  But it was worth it!  While busy it wasn't overly crowded and the animals seemed to be enjoying the break in the cold weather too.  The bears were frolicking, the monkeys were playing, the elephant zoo person was out working on commands with him.  That was pretty cool to watch him pick the whole apple out of the guys hand with his truck and shove it in his mouth whole.  It was just an out and out beautiful day.

But we seemed to miss the ice and snow that we've gotten at least once a week for the past 3 weeks so we headed over to the ice skating rink where Steffanie promised to show us some of her past figure skating glory.  Sarah couldn't skate, you know, since she can't walk yet so Auntie Cam held her while Chris and I enjoyed the rink.  It was a lot of fun.  I'm glad the zoo did that.  Sure it was tiny and the ice was horrible and the skates were dull, but we laughed and had a good time enjoying the delightful figure skating styles of Steffanie.

What you need photographic evidence of Steffanie and her professional level skating moves!  Well, alright, if you insist.

  1. Absolutely one of your finest blog post ever. And the best part is that you didn't put my awkward skating pics up with Steffanie's.
