A couple of weeks ago, the mommies from DD's playdate group took the kids out for some icing skating fun. Well, we all thought it was a great idea and the kids were really excited. DD was especially excited because ever since we went to see Disney on Ice she had wanted to ice skate.
Just look at that huge smile!
Still smiling because we were holding onto the wall and just got started.
The end result... Yeah, so DD's dream of being an ice princess quickly faded once she realized that ice skating was not as easy as it appeared to be (from watching Disney on Ice). Guess who never wants to set her feet on ice again... lol... DD was not the only kid who, aftwards, thought ice skating was the worst thing ever. Not a single child from DD's playdate group liked it.
To make up for the diappointing ice skating event, we went out for some yummy Hawaiian BBQ that day. Here's DD and Kaia.
A couple of weekends ago, DH and I took DD for some delicious Indian food after a shopping trip at the local farmers' market.
You know how much I love taking pictures of my family eating ;).
We also got some frozen yogurt that day. DD, not surprisingly, thought it was great.
Another fun thing we did was attending a birthday party last week. DD's friends turned 3 and we went to their house for a fun party.
My friend Cristy made these amazing cakes for her boys -- she was doing a monsters' theme.
She also made really cute monster cupcakes for the kids. I am totally in awe of how talented she is.
No birthday party is complete without a bounce house-- it was definitely the highlight for DD.
The birthday boys opening up their gifts.
Meanwhile, DD never left the bounce house.
Cristy's house was about 30 minutes from our house, so on the way home, we stopped for lunch at one of our favorite Japanese supermarkets. We normally don't go to it because it is too far out of the way, but since it was on our way home, we went to the food court inside the supermarket.
DD got a kid's meal. Look at how impressive this thing was. I love that it is such a healthy lunch for less than $5.
I also got a very yummy lunch of miso soup, potato salad, rice and fish for less than $6.
Lastly, here some photos of DD coloring. She just started coloring within the lines. I was told by a friend who used to be preschool teacher that most preschools don't tell the kids they must color within the lines. I don't know what DD's preschool teacher's thoughts are on this topic, but I do find it interesting that she now colors within the lines.
