Sundays in my City #77 – Record Attempt

25 Sep

Unknown Mami

Crazy busy seems to be the theme of the year around these parts.  Finally we had a weekend with nothing planned and nothing to do so instead of doing nothing we went looking for record breaking adventures.  We headed down to Icehouse to take part in the the World Record attempt of the biggest conga line on ice.  Knowing that we would be out on the ice and hanging on tight, there was no point taking a camera with me.  Naturally I did have my phone so I did get a quick snap of girl-child as she headed back out for another skate before the conga line began.

Ready to Conga Skate

I don’t think that we had enough participants to make the world record (official number released tomorrow) but we had a great time.  I have to admit that it is harder than it looks to skate in a huge conga line for 15 minutes! We were in the middle of the line, man-child at the front, followed by the kids and then me and all hanging on tight.  We managed stay together and not break our section of the conga line.  Even if we didn’t make the record yesterday, we had a great time.  We will have to go back for another attempt next time.

Head over to Unknown Mami and check out some of the adventures others have had during their Sundays in my City.

    That sounds like such fun! I doubt if I’ll ever have the chance to skate – hmm… maybe 🙂

    I hope you all had the numbers to break the record, but it still sounds like everyone had a lot of fun.

    sounds like fun, I don’t think you’d be capable of sitting at home doing nothing.

    She looks like she’s having fun 🙂 I’m not at all surprised to hear the conga line thing was quite a challenge – coordinating people for something like that is very tricky!
