What do you mean he turned 8 a month ago? You mean it isn't customary to celebrate a month late? What if the boy wants a party at a skating rink and his birthday is right before Christmas? Isn't it OK then? What is with all the questions I keep asking?
Ethan wanted to go to a skating rink. Even though this is not how I typically do parties, Peter pointed out that we only have them every four years and we did buy them all rollerblades for Christmas. This was our second time at a rink (the first being a birthday party the day before Ethan decided he wanted his party there and the reason we decided to buy skates for the kids). We sent out the invites a little late (like three days before the party), but still had a nice turn out (6 of the 10 kids invited). I realized it would be rude of me to post his friends pictures without permission, so all you get are my own family. Minus me, who was behind the camera (although I took the picture in the post below that same day).
Here is Ethan and the cake and cupcakes (he wanted a sport theme):
And in case you adore seeing pictures of my family:
