Ice Skating at Mokdong in Seoul

It's been awhile since we ventured out, but we decided that Peter's extra day off today was a perfect one to get out and go do something fun! We drove up to Seoul and went Ice Skating at the Mokdong Ice Rink. It was a blast, but very cold!
The trip up there wasn't all that fun. This is Peter's "I hate driving in Korea" face...
And for good reason...
After we finally got up there though, it was TONS of fun!!! Faithy got the CUTEST tiny ice skates I've ever seen!
We went with the Cook family and all the kids loved it!
I was a little worried about Faith or Joshua getting out there once, slipping and then being done, but ALL of the kids (except Samuel! :) kept trying and made it around the rink several times!
Here's Faith Elaina heading out with Daddy to the rink...
Joy and Mrs. Cook having fun...
Joshua was so brave!
He never wanted to stop! (A lot of the pictures are a little blurry because they were taken through the window of the rink.)
Mr. Cook and Mr. Adams skating with the Cook girls...Our pictures from today kind of remind me of the 'Where's Waldo' books....can you find the Americans in the crowd?  :)
Taking a forced break, but still happy, knowing they'll get to go back out on the ice soon!...
Faith skated with Mommy several times...
Then went around again with Mrs. Cook...
The grown ups had a great time, but our feet were sore! The kids just kept going and going and they were all a little sad when it was time to go.
Part way through, everyone had to get off the ice and we got to watch the zamboni which was pretty exciting. Of course we only knew we had to get off when after the announcement, made of course in Korean, everyone else started moving to the exits!  :)
Samuel had fun watching everyone too! He spent some of the time outside the window with Mom or Dad and some of the time in the warm lobby since it was SO COLD in there!
Since we drove so far, before we went skating we also spent some time at Yongson and visited their huge PX and library and enjoyed a yummy lunch out eating some Mexican style was delicious!
And a VERY fun day!!  :)


  1. what FUN!!!! Love the last picture... it is too precious!

  2. Awesome pictures looks like a blast!

  3. Great pictures, it looks like you guys had fun! We've gotta get our boys out on the ice one of these days, I'm waiting for warmer (non-windy, non-rainy) weather so we can take them out on a lake. At the rate this winter is going, that'll never happen lol. I love the last picture, so cute!
