Emma's birthday

For Emma's birthday back in January we went ice skating. It was a great time. She loves Barbie movies and in one Barbie ice skates and of course makes it look easy. Emma has been obsessed with ice skating since the summer and has been asking if we can go skating for her next birthday. It was quite the experience!!! Lucky for us Stan's sister Sarah came with us. (we could not have done it without her!) Tyson was set on skating too! So there were three adults and three children, Yes we brought Lily and next time we will leave her with someone. Stan and I have not been skating for a long time. I think it was close to 10 years for me. We had a great time though. By the end Emma could skate without holding anything.
After skating we went to Pirate Island with Sarah and had a great time. That place is really cool. The kids loved the cannons that went off and made smoke rings. There also is a man there who was making balloon animals so the kids each got one. Emma got a butterfly, Tyson a T-Rex and Lily a caterpillar.
For a cake I thought we would get creative. Emma had seen a cake with a barbie in it and decided that was what she wanted. So, thanks to a friend who let me borrow the supplies needed we were able to do it. For my first non sheet cake it turned out pretty cute. Emma was so excited when she saw it. She knew I was doing it but was so excited to see it actually happen. It was a great experience.

How fun! I had a doll cake when I was little and to this day that is the ONLY birthday cake I can remember. I bet she is making the same kind of wonderful memories. Fun stuff!
