On Feb. 15th Emily will be 7, so yesterday we had her birthday party. We don't usually do big parties, but every few years the kids get to have a "friends" party and this year Emily and Ashlyn get to. We went to a place called Bounce It Up where there are huge bouncy houses and slides. The kids all had a great time, and I didn't have to deal with a mess at home! They got to bounce for over an hour, then have cake and watch Emily open her presents. It was lots of fun, and boy did they sleep last night!
