p a r t y
K's birthday party was super fun. The kids played well together and I think the adults had a nice time. My parents probably weren't too comfortable in the bleacher seating, but it was sure great to have them there. All 4 grandparents, 2 cousins, 1 aunt, 1 uncle, 1 Mom, 1 Dad, 2 brothers and 13 friends (including the Mom of one friend) stuck around and helped celebrate.
We played: pin the fruit on the tree, hot coconut, hula hoopla, musical towels, limbo and with balls and hula hoops.
We ate: cupcakes, cake, fruit and rice krispie bars and drank water and Hawaiian Punch.
Instead of gifts, we asked that everyone bring a book for a book exchange. Some brought gifts anyway, but I think everyone enjoyed getting a new book to read.
Huge thank you to all the Veterans who have made our freedom possible. Thank you Clarence Jr., Chuck, Bud, Brad, Brent and Stuart. We salute...
