When your birthday falls right at the end of winter (supposedly? I heard it snowed in NW PA yesterday) and usually during the Easter season, I guess you get to partay! Or maybe it's because you're four? Or maybe because your parents are crazy.
Saturday we hosted a kid party for Ian. He invited a lot of kids. Only (only, right...) eight including Ian, Aaron, and Lauren were able to come. As it stood, though, it turned out to be the perfect number and mix of kids. In my opinion, everyone had a good time!
If you haven't ever been to a "kid party" for a bunch of preschoolers, picture 8 kids ages 6 & under running around like lunatics, only pausing momentarily to lick the frosting off the top of a cupcake. It's exhausting!
Yesterday, we hosted some ladies and kids from my mom's group. We had seven children including 2 babies, 2-2 year olds, a 3 year old, a 4 year old, and a 5 year old. Interesting to me that it was not as wild as Ian's preschool friend party. And I actually got to sit down!
This weekend will will have some family in town and it will be party time again. Not specifically for Ian's birthday, but for all the April birthdays we have in our family.
Don't think the fun stops there, either as we will celebrate with Grandma & Grandpa Spaceship (Bishop) in a couple weeks.
I think Ian has no idea that birthdays don't technically last for a month! We're making the most of all this activity piled up. Maybe we can keep it rolling until Lauren's birthday.
