Kate was invited to a birthday party for one of her classmates today at Main Event. To say she was excited is an extreme understatement. We weren't sure what all we would be doing. As it turns out, the birthday girl chose 2 events for them to participate in: laser tag and the ropes course. I knew Kate would not do laser tag - it's dark and unfamiliar and she just doesn't always go for that. Another little girl was also a bit scared to go in, so they were given some gaming cards to go play with while the rest of the party goers did laser tag.
Once it was time for the ropes course after cake, Kate was all kinds of excited which really threw me off. I mean, it's a ropes course at the ceiling of the building - so way up there. I assumed she was be too scared and wouldn't even want to try it, but if I've learned anything about my little girl it's that she sometimes surprises you when you think she's going to behave one way by doing the opposite.
She lined up and let the event staff put her harness on like a champ, still very excited about heading up the stairs to begin the course.
