We started with our oldest Grand turning eight. We had a little Birthday celebration at our house since it was a babysitting day!
A few days later we had a "Dive-in" movie night at our house to further celebrate her Birthday with a few little friends. It was a grave tactical error to fill the pool with balloons! They looked cool but when it got dark and we started the movie it was really hard to identify little heads from balloons!
This was the neatest party. I want to do it again soon with the movie "Jaws". Wanna come?
Next our youngest Grand turned 4. The day after the "Dive-in" movie party, we rented a bouncer-water slide! Oh, this was a fun party, too.
My favorite part of the party came at the end when I caught two daughters enjoying the Birthday spoils.
And the next day we had a 50th Birthday party for my sister at Pioneer Village. You will be relieved to know we did not have our camera along but there was a singing cowboy, chocolate ganache cake and some yummy brunch food.
Mid-week we celebrated the youngest Grands Birthday on a babysitting day.
And finally, finally we went to a surprise 50th Birthday party for my sister last night at the Chase Field ball park.
My job was to make the picture board and to try and keep the secret. I was successful on both counts. Go me! My sisters job was to glare at her fiancee and then to be very shy.
...and everybody elses job was to have a good time!
And all I can say is PLEASE, PLEASE don't invite me to a birthday party at your house.
I cannot possibly attend another one for at least two weeks.
You have cake?
Well....ok, maybe just one more!
Happy July 3rd!
