Our first day off, Whitney got to cash in on her birthday present from Andrew and me:
She got her ears pierced!
She was so brave, especially for the first one.
She was anticipating A LOT of pain.
(I think a certain big brother may have really talked it up.)
And it was not nearly as bad as she imagined.
The second one hurt a little more, but she bounced right back.
We had it done at claire's.
I was not super impressed.
Before the worker pierces the ears, she draws a dot on each lobe to see where the earrings will go. She asked if I was happy with the placement. They were not quite even, so I had her adjust them a couple of times. She finally had them lined up perfectly...but, she missed one of the dots. Seriously? She was nervous about the piercing. When I saw how badly her hands were shaking, I should have walked out. But I didn't.
Now Whit's earrings are not quite symmetrical. Boo. But it's not terrible. And Whit seems happy with them. So I'm trying to not let it bother me.
Whit's other request was a trip to the ice skating rink. It was pretty empty and we had a great time skating.
Caroline's balance still needs some work, but she has got speed.
She pulled ME around the rink. It was hilarious.
We finished the day at Whit's favorite restaurant,
Golden Corral, where we all stuffed our faces. Yum.
