We had a big crowd, and it was one of the first drop-off parties our kids and their friends have had. For some kids, this was hard, because they wanted their parents with them. But most kids seemed to do really well, playing together and following instructions. We didn't get any great pictures (what's new, I really need to learn how to use my camera!), and the kids were in constant motion!
The party attendees had 60 minutes in the gym with gymnastics teachers, playing games and jumping. Then they had 30 minutes in the "fun factory," which is climbing, tunnels, slides, and a ball pit. Then we did a pizza lunch.

|Love that face!|
|Not so much that one...|
We got a series of pictures of our family as the boys got ready to blow out their candles:

|Eric loves my face in this picture- Asher had touched the hot wax on his candle, and then threw it. He is screaming, I am screaming, and the candle is flying through the air.|
One of the best parts of the day was when I was helping our party "hostess" set up for lunch and she told me that all the other employees were jealous that SHE had gotten assigned to our party- everyone wanted to work our party because they all know and love the kids. I was so pleased- it is great to hear that our kids stand out in a place that sees hundreds of kids cycle through their gymnastics program. And that they're recognized for their good manners and sportsmanship. That was the big gift to me!
