The Big (wet) Birthday Bash!

Jack's birthday party day arrived with much excitement and anticipation last Saturday. Jack has been talking about his party for weeks and weeks. He and Caroline had been having regular practice parties in their play kitchen on a daily basis. Finally the day arrived. And it was raining. And raining. And raining some more.

Well, rain or shine the bounce house company comes... kind of like the mailman, I guess. He arrived bright and early at our house - 7:30am. It was a little torturous for the kids to have to sit in the kitchen and eat their breakfast when a giant Thomas the Tank Engine bounce house was staring at them from the other side of the window. They muddled through and after a little while, were able to go out and bounce until the rain picked up again. Most of the day was a cycle of bouncing, running in to stay dry and wait for the rain to stop, run back out and towel off the bounce house, and bouncing again. Over, and over, and over.

By the time the party started (4pm) it was raining steadily. That certainly didn't keep the kiddos from jumping like maniacs! Jack's party was so fun and flew by in a flurry of water, mud, pizza, cake, presents, thank-yous, and good-byes. He had a BLAST!
