Today my little darling is 5 years old! He is really into hockey - like a true Canuck - and is taking skating and hockey lessons at our community centre. It is beyond cute to see him in all those layers of hockey equipment.
He wanted a hockey party but a lot of the kids at this age don't know how to skate yet, so we settled on a swimming party instead with a hockey-themed cake. In the party room we set off the fire alarm with the sparklers and candles on the cake. Everyone had to be evacuated until the fire department showed up to turn off the alarm panel. I was horrified at the time, but now looking back, it is pretty funny and definitely memorable. The kids said, "the fire truck came! that was the best part of the party!"
