Ella and Kate headed straight for the arena floor for the pre-show action. Here they are stopping for a photo opt.
This is Kate trying on her clown nose! That look looks good on you girl :)
Ella, Aidan, and Kate enjoyed watching some sort of jump rope-gymnastics thing.
Kate was definitely getting into it. Here she is saying "Hey, I can do that too!"
The jugglers were impressive!
When we headed back to our seats look what we found...
A clown! Oh, what's that you say? That's not a clown? It's Uncle Earl? You coulda fooled me :)
Yes, those are goats standing on the backs of miniature horses. I must say I was impressed too!
I think the 7 motorcycles in the the steel ball was Aunt Erica's favorite.
During intermission Erica and I were the girls entertainment. As a side note, Erica and I probably have 100, ok maybe not 100, but a lot of pictures in this exact pose. Earl even commented on how it looked exactly like the one he took right before this with a different camera. What can I say? We've perfected the BFF closeup shot.
Kate found Cooper's popcorn while he was gone and decided to help herself.

It's a cake, of course! With Mom's homemade icing recipe on hand, Kate and I set out to make that Special Someone the best birthday cake she has ever had.
Here is Kate adding her "sweet" touch.
While the cake was baking Kate took a little break from the kitchen.
A little wrestling with Dad.
A little leaf picking.
And some Papa time.
Then it was time to get back to work and check on the cake. Looks like it's finished!
We didn't get any pictures of the icing stage because it was way too messy for expensive electronics like cameras to be around :)
Can you guess who the cake was for? Who is worth all this effort...None other than our Mawmaw!
We think she liked the final product. Or at least everyone else did because it was more than half way gone by the end of the night.
Mawmaw also got some non-perishable gifts to commemorate this milestone celebration.
We hope you had a great birthday Mawmaw! We love you and wish you many, many, many more!
