13th Birthday Skate Party

I was asked to take pictures at my niece's 13th birthday party at Sparkles Skating Rink. At first I was excited because I hadn't been skating in awhile. Then I was nervous because I hadn't been skating in awhile plus I would have the added element of a big DSLR camera around my neck. Once I got there, I rented some roller blades and took a couple of laps to make sure I still had it. Once the guests arrived, everyone started skating and my job began. 

...But not before everyone had some cake and pizza.

It was a great night and party. Everyone had fun and I only fell once. Now I can add taking pictures while roller skating as skill : )
