Ice skating: not a debacle

Ice skating yesterday went better than I expected. I did fine (though weird muscles in my legs are sore today).

Rye tried out the ice with just his shoes on first but then did attempt it with the skates. Mostly, he let Dane and I hold him up and move him along, but he did it for the first time ever and I was proud of him for that.

Later on that afternoon, he came down with a fever and fell asleep in my lap and then slept for two more hours at home. When I took his temperature before bed, it was 103.

He's still sick today. I feel bad for him.

Perhaps I'll get to stay home from work on my birthday after all (Leap Year be damned).

Here are a couple photos from both ice skating and my birthday dinner Friday night. Yes, I requested not cake but an apple pie. It's my birthday, right?

Here we are blowing out the candle.


Yep, he's officially a teenager. Check out the earbuds (and he was watching Star Wars clips on Dane's iPod Touch).


Lacing up the skates.

Glad to hear you had a good time! I haven't been ice skating in a while, but it can be hard work!

By the way, I like the glasses. Do you wear them often?

Happy Birthday! I hope that you have a good day - that you get to stay home, with a healthy little boy! :)

Thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone! I am at home -- with a sick little boy. But I think he might be on his way to bouncing back. We are playing in the toy room downstairs now.

Chris, I got those glasses about two months ago and I wear them at home sometimes and to work maybe about once a week or a little less often than that. Glad you like them. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I am sorry that Rye is sick but it sounds like he may be getting better just for your bday. Smart kid. I am hoping next year we will actually be together for the big bday!

Hope you had a good rest of your birthday! I didn't end up getting done with work until 10:15 p.m. last night.

Those are really cute pictures. It's sweet you had an apple pie for your birthday cake. That sounds really good.
