Sadly, that didn't happen. We showed up at the arena with at least 200 (not an exaggeration) other people waiting to get fitted for skates and hit the ice. Boo! Sarah had cheer practice later in the afternoon and I doubted they'd let all those people skate anyway. We went with Plan B and hit the roller rink instead.
We used to go to the skating rink a lot when the kids were younger, but birthday parties have evolved and we don't head that way much anymore.
The girls seemed to enjoy Plan B!
