I have to start by saying, “Happy Birthday Kelly!!!” It was 10 years ago that we welcomed Kelly into our lives. She was a happy baby and continues to be that way…well, most days. Kelly & I worked on her birthday cake last night. We made a butterfly cake. Kelly has always liked butterflies, so I thought that it would make a cool cake. I was right, it was cool! Kelly did all of the decorating on the cake and I helped take it out of the oven. All of her friends were impressed when they saw it at the party.
Kelly’s party was at Grand Slam in Burnsville. This is a facility which has mini- golf, Krazy Kars (bumper cars), laser tag, batting cages, a playzone and of course, an arcade. There’s also a separate party room for the actual party. This is where you can sit down, eat pizza & cake and open gifts. It was three hours of unlimited play and tons of fun for the kids. Did I mention how easy it is for the parents? Nate & I were thinking that we should have brought the newspaper along. Plus the fact the girls are getting older, they don’t need our help anymore. sniff-sniff
We have a tradition at our house that on your birthday you get to pick a restaurant to go out to that night. Kelly is trying out a new place that she’s never been to. It’s a local establishment called Buffalo Tap. They have really good cheese curds and I think that may have been the selling point in her choosing. It’s time to open family gifts first. Happy Birthday Kel!
