Let’s Skate!


Xavi had a birthday this past weekend and to celebrate, we took her and a couple of her friends skating at Skate City. Having kid birthdays in the dead of winter, ok not really the dead of winter, but it’s too cold for outdoor activities, leaves me with only a handful of choices for birthday party ideas. If you have any, please share them!

We have literally exhausted Skyzone, a trampoline park, the last 2 or 4 birthdays, and ice skating was the option before we discovered Skyzone, so we decided to go with the skating rink. Xavi doesn’t know too many kids here yet, so we decided against a birthday package. They skated their hearts out to loud music, ate pizza and funnel, and drank blue flavored icees. They had a great time, legs were hurting the next day, and the birthday girl was happy, satisfied, and grateful! All, before she received the ultimate gifts, the Pokemon X game from us and from her Tita Dora, the 3D DS that she had been talking to GOD about. Yes, she has.

Here are a few photos from Xavi’s birthday:











Here is a video of the girls doing the Cha-Cha Slide, Xavi’s favorite line dance 🙂
