The calm before the storm.
The table cloth also had hockey sticks and pucks on it.
The children arrived and had pizza and cake:
After cake, the children went onto the ice for a half hour lesson. I was amazed at how much they all progressed during that half hour. They were falling down and all over the place at the beginning and skating around the ice for the the reamining hour of free skate.
Aidan showing off for his friends.
The children even progressed enough to go around the cones!!!
After the lesson was over, we were able, after a lot of coordination, to get a picture of the children all together. This wasn't easy, though!!!
More birthday in a couple of days!!!
After the party, we came home and I fixed a nice Mexican dinner for our friends who came over. Unfortunately, Pat had to leave to go back to the hospital. This time for Dad, who is doing okay now. And Mom is actually on the mend too!! Thanks be to God. I think we are finally going to start getting on an even keel. . .
Unfortunatly, also, the Caps lost. Ah well. There's always next year!!!
