Day 95 of 365: Go Sho'tay, It's Yer BirFday!


I went with Emma today to Spacehoppas for the birthday party of her friend's daughter. I realized after leaving the flat that I had forgotten my camera, so my mobile had to suffice. To further complicate matters, the software for the phone is packed away back in the States, so I cannot upload the pictures from the phone. Thus, the reason why you're having to settle for a poor quality photo tonight. (Just be glad it's not another kitty pic.)

Spacehoppas is similar to a Magic Mountain Fun Center (in the US)...only sans anything too mountainous. In fact, it may very well have been as cold as some weather ON a mountain. Lots of kids were putting on cardigans when they weren't playing.

The photo was taken inside the designated "party zone" where the adorable, newly-turned 7-year-old sat with her friends and family and then blew out the candles on her High School Musical birthday cake.

Naturally, today's festivities made me recall my own birthdays as a child when I would have my own and friends' parties at United Skates of America.

*FLASHBACK*

Setting: Friend's birthday at United Skates of America, circa 1990. The lights dim and the announcer comes over the PA..."this will be a couple's skate only..."

The DJ starts to play "Because I Love You" by Stevie B and my all-time crush passes by me to ask someone else to skate. My heart sinks.

*sigh*

Memories.

I wonder if this was the skating party at which I splatted on my face and consequently had purple knees for a month? Ahhh, such fond memories. Tim Goodenow skating by yelling 'safe!' like an umpire...
