Maura celebrated two significant events this weekend: her sixth birthday and her success at riding a “two-wheeler.” She had several friends over on Saturday for a “Princess and the Frog” themed event. Suzanne, as usual, made an excellent cake for the party.
The girls colored pictures, ate cake, blew bubbles, played with sidewalk chalk, had an Easter egg hunt (not often that you get to do that at a birthday party–Maura’s idea), and played on the swingset. Quite a time.
After church on Sunday, Suz took Maura and her bike out to one of the local baseball fields. We’ve found that a baseball field has been good training ground for learning to ride a two-wheeler: the infield is firm enough to ride on but much more forgiving than the street when the kids fall. Not much later they came back home and Maura was eager to show off her new skills.
Six years old and all grown up. (BTW, Maura picked out her own clothes today….. )
