Emma recently celebrated her 9th birthday. We hosted a party at Mt. Vernon Recreational Center in Alexandria, Virginia. After the kids enjoyed their cake and sit-down activities, we all went into the ice rink. Much to our shock & delight, we were the only people in the skating rink! Emma and her friends skated around for nearly 2 hours. Only an occasional skater from ‘the outside’ came by, but the ice was Emma’s to share with her friends.
