Emma's Birthday Party

I am very lucky to have a great friend Jenn whose husband manages a local Roller Skating Rink and he was kind enough to let us use it yesterday morning from 11 to 1 for a private birthday party for Emma. This meant it was just the people that I invited so we didn't have to worry about where the kids were and whether or not some big kid was messing with them. It also meant that us adults were able to skate and not feel like complete fools in front of people.

I must say it was kind of fun to put skates on again, even Dave joined us for a while and skated. Shortly before time to eat Tim (Jenn's husband) got the limbo pole out and we all played limbo on skates. I am totally paying for this today with a huge bruise on my hip but it was so much fun. The whole party was fun and Emma got a ton of really cool presents. So any of you that were there thank you for making Emma's birthday so special this year!

Now on to the good stuff pictures! The first four pictures were taken before we left for the party and the rest were all at the party.

We had a great time at the party even though my tailbone is a little bruised from the fall during limbo! :) Thanks for inviting us...... Happy Birthday Emma! :)

Oh WHAT FUN!! Love the cake, man Emma looks just like you, as pretty as can be!
I have to admit I like the one of you taking a dive, because, that is EXACTLY what I would be doing!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMMA! What a great day.

Great pictures!!!! I wish I could be there. I'm a sight to see on skates. You could have gotten several laughs on my behalf.
