Falling on ice.

I don't have any pics up , but I will eventually. On Wednesday I tried something new, I ice skated for the very first time in my life. UCF has a skating rink, so my Mother-in-law and I took the girls out.
First of all with in a few minutes even though it had been 25 years my Mother-in-law remembered how to skate and only fell once because my eldest pulled her down.
I on the other hand split my time between making sure my little one didn't fall while holding on to the side, and attempting to skate myself.
I fell twice but at the end I was extremely pleased that not only did i try something new and unfamiliar but so did my girls. My mother in law had tons of fun by the way. I think most of the time we're so busy being adults that we forget to have fun.
So here's my question:
What would you like to try, and why?

Tough question for me because I'm a born chicken. I think skydiving would be a blast but there's no way I'd ever do it!

Ice skating! The last time I did it was about 8-10 years ago! I didn't know UCF had a rink, way cool. I used to be a speed skater as a kid and I dreamed of being a professional ice skater, but being in such a large family it was hard for my mom to make that commitment to getting me in classes regularly. Oh well, it was fun and painful on the toosh!

Ooh, that's cool. I didn't know UCF had a rink. Totally taking my hubby now :)

Hmmm, I really want to try kitesurfing. I used to windsurf, but I never actually tried kitesurfing and it's one of my goals before I turn 30!
