Today, we celebrated her birthday with a Frozen party and ice skating. Not going to lie, it's hard to do birthdays when Christmas is this close. Thankfully, my mom came up with a great idea. Ice skating. Genius.
Six grown ups and eleven little people hit the ice.
Some genius skater person came up with the idea of buckets for balance.
Such a slick idea for a slick sport.
Makenna didn't need the bucket for too long.
She caught on pretty quickly.
So did Degnan. He did have one major crash. As I type, he is soaking his aching back and booty in the tub.
What about the birthday girl? She may not have let go of the bucket to skate up a storm but she did have a great time.
She even held her uncoordinated mother up. A skater, I will never be.
Guess who is a skater. Austin. Who woulda thought? He didn't fall once. He was all over the place.
The birthday girl even scored some pretty awesome swag.
She also scored some pretty fun friends.
In keeping with the Frozen theme, we had ice cream cake.
I get that she has to turn five. But, I have four more days and I am going to suck all the four year old I can get out of it.
