Today we had a birthday party for B. We followed my tried and true method of pizza at the park and it was great. 4 families came but we had a great crowd of kids. I love to have a party where the whole family is welcome and we do some activities but mostly we eat and hang out.
It was a baseball tournament day so the parking was crazy, but the pavilion was empty.
The ice pops and frozen yogurt tubes stayed frozen!
We've achieved a critical mass of kids so we can play games with the 12 handled parachute I have had for years. The kids love the one where I say down and up, then call out someone's name, and they run under.
I got some giant dice so now we can play giant dice games. Yep.
The kids had some unpleasant encounters with kids on the playground. There was a group of about 5 older kids that were swearing and saying body parts. One called lP a boy. Life's like that sometimes. If someone is willing to tell lies, believe that they are a liar. If someone is willing to exclude you from their games, believe that they do not want to be nice to you. Leave them alone. They have nothing you want.
