Skate for Eight!

Hunter loves roller skating, so we had his party at Texas Skatium. I went there for parties and to skate with friends a lot as a child and hadn't been since I was a teenager. Either I just didn't realize how stinky and dirty it was back then or a lot has changed. The kids had a ton of fun, even if it was kind of oogy. They didn't seem to notice!
 
Charlotte, Hunter, and Zack were the only kids (from our party) there for a while and they went straight out to the rink as soon as we found our table...

 



After about 5 minutes, Nathan showed up...
Hunter first skated at Nathan's party back in September and has loved it ever since!


They offer face painting and balloons during the birthday parties. Charlotte was the only one that wanted to get her face painted...not surprising since she was the only girl.

In the middle of the party, they called Hunter and his whole party to the middle of the rink to play games and dance...

I loved watching all of  these boys interact...

First, he had a hula hoop contest with this other birthday girl...

Hula hooping in roller skates is hard!

Then they did some dancing...
It was so funny fun...

That definitely tired them out, so they were excited for pizza and cupcakes...

 




Then they headed back out for more skating! Sweet Zack was so helpful with Charlotte...

Hunter wanted to have a sleepover, too, but I told him that only cousin Zack could sleepover since we were having the big party. He was just as excited about just having Zack as if all of his friends were able to come. He really looks up to Zack.

So, we just had a small group to watch him open his presents...
My phone died after that picture (and my camera was dead at the skating rink), so I didn't get anymore photos. He got legos, lots of money and gift cards, this cool Frisbee ball, a nerf football night vision set, some doodle books, chalk paint, and gum:)
 
Zack and Hunter stayed up until 12:30! I think it was a perfect party day for our eight year old!
