Juliette enjoyed it, but she really didn't like wearing the helmut and that made it difficult for her. After a while, she just sat in the chair and asked me to push her around, which was also fun.
Before long, Ben ditched the chair and took to a hockey stick. He was hitting the puck back and forth with his friend. Unfortunately, his friend has been doing hockey lessons for about 3 years and skated very easily, which was really frustrating Ben. He did awesome for his first time - I couldn't believe he was hitting the puck! But his experience was a bit soured by comparing himself to his friend :( We were very impressed with his skating though!
And our fearless Abbey also dropped the chair rather quickly and enjoyed skating back and forth on the ice. I was so impressed!
