For two weeks straight, I checked the weather every day. 60% chance of rain. 40% chance of rain. 20% chance of rain. 0% chance of rain. Whew… I was relieved. And then… 60% chance of rain. 80% chance of rain. 100% chance of rain. Thankfully, it was for the afternoon, and our party was midday. With a Ninja obstacle course and a bounce house, I was very grateful the weatherman was right; we were safe until the party’s end! (No more checking the weather 2 weeks out for me!)
We catered in Chinese food, which was a huge help. The kids LOVED the chow mien, and I didn’t have to cook.
The kids only took a break from the bounce house to go the Ninja training course… (over and over and over!)
Malachi requested a “strawberry lemonade cake,” so I made a lemon cake with strawberry frosting. (Hence, the pink…)
Presents: I just love the forced smiles in the picture below! 🙂
Still can’t believe my baby is 5!
Happy birthday, my favorite ninja!
