Have you ever been to one of those birthday parties that turned out really well for your own kids? I remember this party well and have no idea if the birthday honoree had fun or not. The birthday party was in the early summer and a summer storm rolled through, sending everyone into the garage/carport for the remainder of the party. The kids were full of energy and ran around the tables chasing each other. Someone, somewhere found a box full of Mardi Gras masks and beads. Most of the kids raided the box and played dress up. I had trouble getting the boys to be still long enough for a picture, but I love the pictures I got.
