Our little Josie-Jo turned seven on Thursday! Instead of hosting a party at the home, I decided to invite the girls out for a day in Kiev. Josie took her best friend, Angel, and we were joined by Magdala, Anya, Alyona, Olya and Annaliese. We started at good old McDonalds for lunch and cake and then headed off to the mall. Unfortunately, the skating rink and rock climbing wall were closed, but the girls were happy to do some shopping instead. Along the way, the girls enjoyed bumper cars and jumping in a bounce house. The highlight of the day was renting rowboats and enjoying a nice row in the river. We finished off the day with some sushi. (It was a first for Anya and Alyona!) All in all, it was a very fun day for everyone, especially the birthday girl!
