Secora is still Secora. Being around groups of people stresses her out and is not fun. It's her birthday and it should be a fun day for her. So we asked her what she wanted to do and quickly realized there's NOT really anything for her to do here in town. Movies are too loud, arcades are too chaotic, ice skating is too different, it's too cold to be out at the park. She said she either wanted to go to the zoo or the McKenna Children's Museum. Because we were getting another big cold snap last week, we went with the children's museum. We needed to make this work on a weekday because she would not have enjoyed it with a weekend crowd, so that was a little bit of trouble, but in the end it worked out.
So the morning of her birthday, we had donuts for breakfast, then loaded up for the long drive. We stopped along the way for Chick-Fil-A, then we were there right after lunch. She immediately took off to enjoy all the activities
The cake was definitely a cake wreck. She wanted Daniel Tiger and Thomas on a cake. I found myself decorating cake at 9pm on a Tuesday night and had the brilliant idea that I could just freehand Daniel and Thomas. No, no I cannot. Thankfully, she's only four, so her standards are pretty low and she was still thrilled.
