My sister gets to spend a fun Christmas in Jamaica with her boyfriend and his family so we took a quick trip to Manhattan (The Little Apple) for some early Christmas fun with them.
First order of business when we got to town was of course lunch and where do you feed super hungry people? Why Pizza Ranch of course. Its a great place to feed hungry boys!

The kids were so excited to get on the ice....until they got on the ice. Lorelai made it about 30 very tough feet and and said she was done. Wyatt clung onto everything for dear life and just couldn't get his feet headed in the right direction. He just wouldn't give up and with tons of help from Aunt Shelley and Dan, he kept at it. We figured out that they had double blade skates in Lorelai's size and once I talked her into trying those out, she stepped on the ice and just took off! I have no idea how many times those 2 circled that little rink but I'm pretty sure we wore out Shelley and Dan! By the end of our skating, Mike had it figured out and so did both kids and we couldn't get the little people off the ice. They didn't want to leave!
After skating we headed back to the apartment for some yummy chili and chicken noodle soup and opened presents. Dan and Shelley got Wyatt a very special gift (and my Dad too). It was a maple bat, just like Dan uses with his name engraved on it along with his birth year. It is beautiful and Wyatt just adored it. Something he will have forever.
