We've always done birthday parties at home or at the park, but this year we held them at different places and both on the same day--it was a long day!
Jack had a swimming party and before they could swim, the kids had to do a swimming assessment. Even though Alice can't swim, she charged right in. The lifeguard helped her to the other side and she waited patiently for her floaties. She had a great time!
There was one other party for part of the time and then the kids had the pool to themselves.
Jack chose a Sponge Bob cake.
Can you see the glee on his face? He got an Annoying Orange DVD.
The whole group!
Alice had her party at Little Gym. She has been asking to do this since we went to a party there in February. It was so cute when she and her friend saw each other through the window. They were excited!
Alice loved sitting in the middle of the parachute.
Her favorite thing, though, was knocking over the cheese mat.
After they played it was time for cake!
She was quite the ham when it came time to open presents. I think it took her about ten minutes to open this one--the more people laughed, the more she took her time!
The whole group--some were nice enough to spend their whole afternoon and evening with us!
Thank you so much to everyone who came and celebrated with us. Our kids have some terrific friends!
