Kirsten's Birthday Party

Today we had Kirsten's big birthday party. I was not sure that I was up to it after this week, but I am so glad that we did. It was just what all of us needed. We had the party in the back yard and set up a small pool, slip-n-slide, two sprinklers, and a ball that squirts water, plus we have the trampoline. Overall, it was plenty for all 18 kids to do. Most of the parents stayed too, and so we had fun socializing and not just chasing kids.

Here she is actually climbing into the pool. They were having cannon ball contests earlier.

A beautiful cake for a beautiful girl!

Thank you everyone for coming. Kirsten had such a great time sharing today with her friends.
