We had Zachary’s birthday party today. He opted for a hockey party in the park with eleven of his closest friends and it was fabulous! A bunch of the dads stuck around and played with the kids and it was wonderful to see the smiles, the laughter and the fun!
We came back here for pizza, cupcakes and presents and the last hour was spent in the park playing a massive game of Manhunt!
Some of my favourite childhood memories are of my birthday parties and this is one Zach will look back on and remember. After all his friends left I asked him if he had fun and he said; ‘mom, three words…best party ever’!
What a feeling!
And now that the house has been restored to its usual state of cleanliness after twelve young men tromping through it with popcorn and pizza, I can settle in for the evening and bask in the warm glow of a happy kid.
Now for that Epsom salts bath! 🙂
