Emma was invited to an ice skating party for her friend Emory's 6th birthday party. She was so excited about ice skating leading up to the party but as soon as we walked into the skating rink, she panicked and did not want to get out on the ice. Thankfully we were able to convince her to give it a try and within about 10 minutes, she was ready to try it alone without holding my hand. Brad stopped by so he could get some photos. Josh decided he wanted to try but about as soon as he got on the ice, he had decided that was enough. The kids all had a great time and were so interested in ice skating that they missed out on the cake. Their loss because I can attest to the fact that it was very good!
After the party, Emma went home with her friend Heidi for her first sleepover with Heidi and Juliana. She was so excited that she was old enough to go sleep at a friends house without Mommy or Daddy. From all reports, the girls did great and might have actually gotten some sleep.
