The birthday celebration of my girl friend’s son was a success. It’s been a while since we have been to her house. I the last time we were there was at the Halloween Party. Uh, I wasn’t even sure. 🙂
My darling daughter had a great time playing with the other guests’ kids. There’s a play set in their backyard that has swing, slide, and a house that were put together. As soon as we arrived and greeted the host and some guests, DD went straight to backyard and got on the swing.
It wasn’t a themed birthday party. It was just simple yet big. I mean simple because the only decoration was one “Happy Birthday” balloon. Big, because there so many guests and most of them are grown ups. 😀 The celebrant turned 13 years old so I guess he didn’t like the thought of having this fancy theme decoration.
As parents, we notice that as kids gets older their interest in having big birthday celebration declines. Especially when they are approaching their teens. It seems like some teens don’t find big birthday parties appealing anymore. Anyway, special occasions like birthdays are worth celebrating no matter how big or small the celebration is.
There’s lots of food at the party this afternoon. The main attraction was the whole roasted pig she ordered from someone in Tyler (Texas).
