MyHero On Ice

When you heard 
ON ICE 
did you think I had 
done the old boy in?
Nah....on with the story~

SweetCheeks has nothing
on MyHero.
She might have been the 
Holiday Season
but MyHero and 
SweetCheeks' sister,Lulu,
are the face of the local
downtown skating rink.

MyHero is a good skater
so he got a late day call to
see if he would come downtown 
and bring one of girls
for a night time photo shoot
for the Broadway district.

Here he is skating with Lulu.
Pretty cute, huh?
While they are going round and round,
I am sitting inside the cafe that 
faces the rink drinking a hot coffee.
Looking out
I see this....
And they pause by the window 
so I can snap a picture of the two of them.
Not such a great shot through the window..
but there they are.
Hmmmmm...
What do you think 
SweetCheeks is gonna think
when she finds out her
sister has replaced her?
This look kind of comes to mind!
Gotta love a face like that!

your photo name

Nancy @ The Headmistress said...

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Funny. What a face!

Susie said...

Diana, I love the skating with grandfather photos. Your Hero's a trooper for sure. Yes, SC would be making that face.LOL. xoxo, Susie

lynn said...

looks like he might be a hero to a couple of other gals, too:)

Kim K. said...

Absolutely precious.

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Awwwww....I love those moments when the kids get to spend time with Dad or Grandpa!

That Sweet Cheeks has the look, doesn't she? I guess I must have done that a lot as a child because Daddy always said "I hope your face don't freeze like that!" lol

Have a great, cold, dreary, snowy, rainy Sunday! I'm not bitter...

Jettie said...

Yeah, that is probably what she is thinking, or maybe Ice Cream.

Gert said...

Oh my, what fun! And what a great photo shoot...(for your photo shoot!...smile!!) love the photo of sweet cheeks!!

Stay warm!
Gert

Kathy@ Gone North said...

Oh.. Priceless. Those are great shots. Are those the ones used in the promo???
And no one can pout like Sweetcheeks... : )

Anonymous said...

what a beautiful time for them to share, thats a beautiful spot to skate as well, poor sweet cheeks,

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oh gosh, I thought he joined Ice Capades, Diana! : ) I used to love to ice skate when I was a kid and through my teen years. I can't even imagine how I would do at this point. I may get to find out though because they are building a new outdoor mall about 5 minutes from us and they are including . . . an ice skating rink!

Ron said...

Pout. Pout. What a face. Happy Sunday! xo

Nonnie said...

He is a hero! I'm happy for Lulu that she got to be in the spotlight, and I am guessing you will make it all up to Sweet Cheeks before the day is over.

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, LuLu and her grandpa skating makes a beautiful memory. Yes, sweetcheeks will probably have that face, but you have to love her. I can remember trying to explain to little ones that they have to share at young age, but when you are the youngest you don't see it that way. We are to have rain again this morning, with snow later. Have a wonderful Sunday. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Zoey said...

How great that your husband loves to skate--I am sure Lulu feels pretty special. Your city has a nice outdoor rink...outdoor rinks seem to be disappearing.

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Creating more lovely memories - love it! Sorry SweetCheeks!

Beth said...

Precious photos!!

Patty Patterson said...

I think it's Lulu who steals the show with that pretty red coat. Perfect for ice skating photos!

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Your Hero and Lulu are just to sweet. I love those pictures. I'd be sitting right next to you though! Great spot to watch the magic. Poor little SweetCheeks!!

I love the photos, Diana. Just pure charm, even through the window.

P.S. I'm in awe of anyone who can skate.

Debbie @ MeandMyDIY said...

How nice for your kids to be able to call up at the drop of a dime and have the two of you there. Love the pictures. Looks like a lot of fun. I would have been inside drinking hot chocolate with you though! :)

I have one of those granddaughters who makes faces. Some day I will share them. Do you skate too or do you have weak ankles or am I dating myself?

Oh, my. SweetCheeks has THE look down. That will come in handy later in life. And I did think that you might have done away with the hubby!

KrippledWarrior said...

I didn't even consider that you offed anyone, the pic of ice-skaters showed under the banner. If you had said, he sleeps with Osama that would have been another story

Dewena Callis said...

I know I'm at the tail end of a lot of comments, Diana, but I just had to write and say that you can't even begin to imagine how much fun this looks to a Southerner! It's like the stuff of movies to us.
