What better way to beat the heat than to spend the hot afternoon inside a roller rink? I could only find one rink in Austin that was open during the day - Playland Skate Center.
We are not avid roller skaters, in fact, this was D's first time, and K's second. So the boys spent a lot of time figuring out how to traverse the rink (and a lot of time on their bottoms).
But they had a good time, and improved dramatically by the time we left. And they are all ready to try it again some time.
