Jacob and Katie went on their first date this weekend. In California, although you can drive at 16, you cannot drive anyone under the age of 25 for one year after you obtain your driver's license. That puts a big damper on dating at the age of 16 since everyone has to arrive separately or be driven by a parent. But Jacob's Priest's Quorum sponsored an ice-skating date this weekend. So Jacob took his good friend Ashley, and Katie was asked by Josh, another boy in the ward. They had a great time. Here are some pictures.

Here are three of the couples, including Katie and her date Josh, on the right. There were some other couples plus the Bishop and his daughter and some other leaders each came with a spouse or child.
They had a good time. Apparently Jacob and another member of the quorum did an ice skating performance in the middle of the rink for everyone. After the skating, most of the kids went over to the 16th birthday party for a friend in the Stake. I think they all had a good time. They're growing up!
