Anyway. All that to say that we celebrated the girls birthday last week. Twice. Their actual birthday was on Thursday. We started the day with a scavenger hunt that ended with little debbie snack cakes hidden in the microwave. The kids all had their school work done in advance, so they all had the day off from school. Which means we had lots of time for playing, and baking birthday brownies. They managed to agree on dinner at the Chinese buffet, which made life a little easier. Normally we would have done birthday gifts after dinner, but this year the girls couldn't think of anything they wanted, so we went grocery shopping instead.
Their other birthday was on Saturday. Jory's gift to them was a trip to the roller skating rink. We'd never taken them before, but they received roller skates for Christmas, and were itching to use them. Turns out both girls are naturals. Alex, not so much. But we all had a fabulous time zipping around the rink. After skating it was time for pizza and a quick trip to the library.
