Well, that was probably the wrong choice. The day was awful! It rained pretty much the whole time. The rain made the bounce house wet and slippery to the point where the kids didn't even want to use it (until an adult would get in and completely towel dry it until the next rain shower)...$250 down the drain! Plus, the kids barely attempted the other outdoor activities we had set up...time down the drain! And to top it off, a lot of them flocked inside to our playroom, which I had really wanted to avoid since it had gotten destroyed the last time we had 20+ kids in there...and this time was no exception (although it was a bit better than the last time).
Basically, it was a really frustrating experience for me. It was a lot of wasted time, wasted money, and anxiety! BUT, you know who didn't notice one bit of it? This guy...
In fact, he (and his brother) loved every single second of it.
And at the end of the day, that is all that matters! So, the party may not have been the perfection that party planner me had hoped for, but it was the perfection that mommy me had!
I will be back the rest of the week with details on all the party specifics...the decorations, food, favors, and activities.
