My new favorite community resource

We have passed the sign for the Mackey Skate Park a gazillion times on the way to soccer games, but never really knew what it was about. Well, volunteers offer to flood the ice daily, provide a small building for getting skates on and off, a bonfire pit, and well, an awesome winter-time activity for free! And while we love the Moffat Pond a whole lot, the Mackey Skate Park is also pretty great. Makili found this crate to push around and he was a motor, zooming around the ice so fast and falling just as awesome just for fun. It gave him a lot of confidence to push on the crate, and he was doing all sorts of crazy tricks. I couldn't believe he didn't get tired (I was tired way before he was!) Remick desperately wants to be one of the big guys, which is a really conflict for him since he can't seem to stay standing on the ice with skates on, or even shoes half the time. Anyway, I think it's pretty awesome that someone does this!
