Joel in Stonehenge, United Kingdom! 10-24-16

My son Joel shared this photo today from Stonehenge, United Kingdom! He's have an amazing time in this European Disney On Ice Frozen tour!  He says these rocks have been here for 4,500 years!  Also, he commented that the English countryside is so beautiful and that he feels like he is in Narnia!

Lakewood Ice - Ice Hockey Skating Fun - Monday, 10-24-16

I skated today at Lakewood Ice. I started out in figure skates, but when this little four year old boy in ice hockey skates got on the ice, I changed into my hockey skates and had the best time playing with him and helping a young 21 year old man who had just begun to skate and hopes to play hockey.

The public was really empty (only about 5 or 6 people on the ice!), so all of a sudden, all of us on the ice that were skating began socialzing in our hockey skates and I had the best time.

What was fun today was that I just shared my love of skating without thinking about getting paid ...and that made it extra fun!

This photo was taken by the very friendly and nice skate guard. Lakewood Ice is a really fun ice rink!

Congratulation Card to Annabelle From Broadmoor Skating Club Board of Directors!

Annabelle just received a wonderful congratulation card for becoming a US Figure Skating SEXTUPLE Gold Medalist from the Broadmoor Skating Club board of directors!

Annabelle represented Los Angeles Figure Skating Club since when she competed in pairs with her brother Joel, one partner needed to be from the Pacific Coast section, but almost all her skating tests were taken at the Broadmoor Skating Club and her 2nd club is Broadmoor Skating Club.

What a wonderful surprise it was for her to open up and read this card yesterday morning! Thank you Broadmoor Skating Club!
