Andrew just wanted all his friends together for his party, no matter what activity they did. So, naturally, I choose what I wanted and that was a party NOT at our house (so no cleanup) and somewhere he could invite everyone (I hate it when kids are left out). Roller Skating it was! Andrew is really into Pugs this year so we kinda did some pug related things but pugs aren't exactly easy to plan decorations for. By far the easiest party to plan that I've ever done . . .but we paid for that luxury too. It was worth it for me, and he had a great turnout and a blast with his friends.
The Marietta Roller Rink not only lets you on the court in shoes (which was great for grandparents, parents and a young handicapped boy with us) but they also allow roller hockey. I don't recommend this, it's very dangerous and had a lot of tears and injuries . .. however, every kid I talked to said this was the best part and something they had never done before. Dangerous but fun and I would do it again I think for this age or older.

Happy Birthday Buddy! Last year in the single digits!
