A Good Time Was Had By All
Sunday, June 01, 2014
Today we celebrated the birthdays of our two Grand-daughters. Nola turned 2 on May 21st. and Elizabeth turned 7 on May 31st.. We had the party at our oldest son's home. Our DIL's parents were also there. They are from several miles away and actually arrived on Friday night. The woman who has been their Day-Care person since Elizabeth was born and her husband were also there, plus my Mom and their next-door neighbor. We had a picnic lunch and were then driven inside by rain. We have actually had storms all day today and they are still in the area. I can hear thunder in the distance as I write this. The party was fun and was a good way to end the celebration of the birthdays. I say end, because the celebration actually started on Saturday. Elizabeth and a classmate, Emma, had a joint party at Emma's house. She lives in the country and they have an outdoor volleyball court, a pond, and lots of space to run. There were 15 classmates at the party from 3-5 PM and then if their parents wanted to, they could stay for a picnic supper and a campfire after. We arrived at the party at noon to help set up and didn't leave for home until 9PM. I was EXHAUSTED!!!!! There is NOTHING like the energy of 15 7 year-olds!!!!! Today's slower pace was welcome. Elizabeth and I were talking about birthday parties, and she told me that she had been to one on Friday (YES........this Friday) where a LIMO picked up the kids at school and drove them to the local roller rink. When they were finished skating, the LIMO picked them up again and took them to the Birthday Girl's home, where they had supper and watched the movie FROZEN. The kids are 7!!!!! What do you think of a LIMO for the birthday party of a 7 year-old? I know that I am OLD, but Seriously???????
After 3 days of partying, I am sure that Elizabeth will sleep tonight.
I hope your weekend was more relaxing than mine........
