Oh what a (birth)day!

Our little miss sure did have a full day today as she celebrated turing 5. We started off with a special birthday breakfast - just what the birthday girl ordered - pancakes!

After a day of celebrating at school with friends, practicing for her dance recital (and finally getting her costume), and just all around fun...

We headed to a skating party for a friend (who is the big brother of one of Megan's friends)...

Megan was a trooper - she's never had real skates on before, but she was fearless and pushed through any fears she had. And she had so much fun!

Well Nicole was not going to let her big sister have all the fun - when Megan and I put on our skates - she was taking her shoes off and looking for her skates. It was quite cute so we gave in and let the little one have a go of it. I was sure she'd last all of 4 minutes with those skates on.


Oh yeah, she showed me... she kept those skates on the whole time and was like the energizer bunny - she just kept going and going!
We got a little skate helper for Megan - most of the girls her age had one to help them get around the rink.

Of course, Nicole wanted in on that action too...

We came home and let Megan open her family birthday presents. I think her favorite present was her new "pet hotel" - We introduced it as a little hotel for her stuffed animals. Well that was all those girls needed to hear...

And that is just the tip of the iceberg of her stuffed animals. She told me that she might need another one or a really tall one. Good to know.

(and thanks Dawn Blaisdell - that was our $2.99 Goodwill find from last summer that I've been keeping for just the right moment.)

Now the girls have collapsed from skating exhaustion and fun - and I'm wondering if I'll be able to move in the morning. :^)
