Shout out to the Son!

I am almost a week late giving a birthday shoutout to my Son! Snake turned 6 last week and today (the first day back to school after Spring Break) he got to hand out candy to his classmates and they sang Happy Birthday to him. He was so proud. Simply glowing...

So, for his birthday he decided he wanted to go to McD's for burgers and then to the skating rink.

Before the adventure we sat down for a "close-your-eyes-because-mommy-didn't-wrap-your-presents" present opening. (Did you follow that?)

Ummm, I was under the very false impression that skating was like riding a bike, you never forget. I am here to tell you, YOU DO! My keester had more than a few meetings with the no-so-soft ground. We don't need to dwell on that though, I'll let you enjoy pictures from the adventure!

I can't figure out if he is checkin' out the chicks or wishing he knew how to skate. I kept wondering why he chose skating. I know I am a bad parent. I haven't even taught my kids the important, life-saving skill of skating.

We spent most of our time in this area, the kids' rink. No one skating so fast and crazy as to knock you down on your caboose more than you already are.

Speaking of falling on your caboose. This was a common sight for our family...all but Daddy, who has some serious skating skills. I dig skills!

Theme song- Happy Birthday as sung by Marilyn Monroe. hahaha! I make myself laugh.
