Osten's birthday cake is thawing and we are going to be celebrating with Grandma and Grandpa Blomgren today! What thrills and chills!
update: Anders, Kate, Pete Noreen, Alex Samargia and I drove through a torrential downpour to a skating birthday party for Braedon Harer today. Anders did great on the ice and learned so much from Braedon's Dad--working with hockey stick and puck. Anders was outfitted with skates, helmet, gloves and helmet. Thanks so much for everything Harer's! Katie had tons of fun skating with friend, Gracie. They are going to have lots of fun in Kindergarten together.
Back to River Falls and then to Hudson (the place of Osten's birth) to celebrate Osten's day with the Blomgrens--Grandma and Grandpa B, Liana and Ryan. We ate pizza in the party room at the Quality Inn with approximately 20 ten-year old girls and their families who were in town for the soccer tournament in River Falls. Noise levels were very high, but Osten took it all in stride.
Back to the room for cake (loved the Chip/Osten cake Grandma Betty) and presents. We are so blessed with loving family! Osten received a Gopher's hat, blue bibs, Twins sweatshirt, 2 puppy books, lime green and navy polo shirt, tub of vehicles, nesting birds, bird book, 3 piece luggage and Dr. Seuss birthday book
