Last year, three kiddos (Logan, Des and Bri) were all in the same class together so we decided to do one huge party. Jack got to invite several of his kindergarten friends and we invited tons of families from our preschool. My parents even came to town to celebrate. We went to an indoor bouncy gym that has a ginormous inflatable slide. It was so nice and easy to have an all-in-one party and something that entertained several ages of kids and grown-up that are young at heart. Of course, we celebrated each kids' actual birthday with a classroom treat, cake and presents with family and trip to Scott's parents house.
Here are some of my favorite moments from that party (April 2011):
Papa and Des on the big slide
Logan on the zipline
Jethro and Scott playing ping pong
Des bouncing with Bri and Nana
Logan and his long-time girl friend, Claire
Getting silly with Nana
Granddad and Bri sliding
Jack at the air hockey table
Bri and Nana taking a turn on the slide
An exhausted but happy family!
This year, we changed things up a bit. Jack decided to have two friends and Logan go to Chuck E. Cheese with him. Des and Bri had an after school party with their preschool friends. And Logan will be taking two friends and his brother to Chuck E. Cheese. Who knows what next year holds?
