While we were celebrating Joe's birthday the local news station taped us for a story on the smoking ban that will go into effect in May 1, 2010. Our friend Mike was interviewed. Click HERE to see the kids bowling (and Molly, Joe, and Leah's scores!) on the 6:00 PM news.

Joe had a bowling party to celebrate his 7th birthday. Daniel, Molly, Charlie, Emma and Leah attended. The kids had lunch and then bowled. TV 6 showed up during the party and asked to interview us (Mike talked) and film our party. In May the bowling alley will be smoke free and they were doing a human interest story about families and bowling.
Joe's birthday was filled with tons of activities. In the afternoon he and Emma had their horseback riding lesson at CHUM and we brought cupcakes for all the riders and teachers. The kids lined up the horses and sang "Happy Birthday" to Joe. Then he opened his gifts and found a new bike in the basement! We had dinner at Johnny Rockets and the everyone in the restaurant sang "Happy Birthday" and then we went to see the movie "Oceans." Also happening this weekend: two house showings (so we have to keep the house pristine in the midst of all the celebrating) and a bowling party this afternoon.

The Marble School Carnival was tonight. I did my volunteer 1/2 hour at the moonwalk, while Emma ran around with her friends (Chris & Joe opted out and went to Old Town for dinner). The big surprise was that Emma won one of the big prizes in the raffle....An American Girl Doll!!!!!!! It really is a dream come true for Emma.

Emma's school put on a spring musical extravaganza on Wednesday evening. The fourth graders presented a show called "Who pushed Humpty Dumpty." Emma played the part of Little Miss Muffit. I was able to take a few photos before the show began.

Emma had her art in another art show. She participated in Sm(art) = Saturday morning art classes at the Kresge Art Museum on the MSU campus. She spent 6 weeks focusing on 3-D art with MSU students who are planning to be art teachers. The last class was an art exhibit. Stacy took these photos of Emma's art.
