Audra Bayette, a local wedding photographer and friend to us all, turned 40 recently, and in true Audra style decided to have her party at the Happy Wheels roller rink in Portland. She is absolutely young at heart, and such fun to be around. Kids and adults alike strapped on skates and gave it a go, some more successfully than others. My excuse was that I didn't want to come crashing down holding my cameras, so I didn't get to test my skills that day. Audra, on the other hand, is a skating pro having taken some classes with the local roller derby league. She was also the DJ for her party, making sure to have some good tunes, including some slower picks for the couples skates.
After everyone worked up an appetite they were treated to birthday cake, ice cream sandwiches, and juice boxes. Little Will even managed to get his entire piece of cake on his fork and up to his mouth without it falling off! He doesn't waste any time.
Audra, you are the best, thanks for inviting me to your party! I hope you keep wearing the princess button I got you with pride, there is no one else I know that could rock it more. xoxo
