There's a 10 year old in the house!

We had a fun weekend celebrating Emily's birthday. She had a mini-slumber party with two girlfriends Friday night and a "Monkey Madness" party on Saturday. We did a "monkey decathlon" (thanks to Kevin's creative genius!), ate monkey ice cream cake (I think the experiment worked) and generally monkeyed around! Sunday, Emily and I (and Auntie Penny) got to spend some "girl time" clothes shopping for her. It was a fun, busy weekend and we have an awesome ten year old! Emily is excited to start her first (sort of) "real job" today. She is taking care of the neighbor's plants and cats while they are out of town!
