|Water balloon fight anyone?|
Alex disappeared quickly when an offer from a friend came in for a sleep over so she was not around long. Pretty good move on her part since there was really no where to hide from this crew. Ashley and I did not have that option so we kept pretty much to our room until the boys ended up going to bed...but then half of them wanted to stay up and played with legos until close to 3am. Lots of trips to the refrigerator and the bathroom all night and more than a few bites from of the leftover cake with lots crumbs and frosting on the floor to prove it.

What we like about this year's birthday for Trace is that it was simple. The boys provided their own entertainment and energy. They are friends. Remove the parents(mostly), add water, food and movie and these kids are going to find a way to have a pretty good time. The chemistry is there for a fun time so let it happen. That's what they will remember. Many birthdays we attend here are similar. Simple, fun, social and energized by those in attendance...and no little specially decorated, packed bag full of crap candy and plastic toys from China to take home at the end of the party.
