celebrating 6

Oh people! How could no one suggest a doctor with X-ray vision? Or a waitress with 10 arms and hands so she could wait on tables of ten without a sweat? A mother with Automatic Stun-Ray Gaze to freeze her children in place? I'm blaming the heat and humidity for sapping our creative juices over the weekend.

Meanwhile, back at Chez Green Girl, we had a party over the weekend.

We mixed 15 boys with a giant inflatable waterslide

and a swimming pool


and a bunch of food.

Then we sent them home tired, shriveled and damp, making certain each waterlogged boy had his own swim noodle clutched in his pruned fingers. Mr. G felt confident he'd had the best birthday party in his whole life. I have to agree.

  1. Great party idea! I love how you sent them home with a noodle instead of candy! I'll have to use this one next year, thanks :)

  2. Sounds like Mr. G had a fun birthday. Tell him Happy Birthday from me. Looking forward to getting together again sometime. Hopefully I'll have some more news on the book. Take care and enjoy the beautiful weather!

  9. Oh that brought back so many memories. What fun! We use to take the birthday party boys to the park for baseball, then back home for food and cake and swimming then out for a scavenger hunt and then came the sleep over. I have a 1000 sq. foot house.....one year we had 14 little boys sleep over. We moved the furniture out of the living room and had wall to wall boys in sleeping bags. Oh what a blast! We had some of the best parties ever...and our kids still talk about them today....and our kids are 27, 30 and 35!! Happy birthday to Mr. G!!

  10. Looks like a great time. We're forgoing the party this year in favor of a trip to the zoo. Yes, the zoo on a 90+ degree day with 50% chance of thunderstorms. It should be delightful.

    Glad your celebration was a success.
