A 4th Birthday to be Remembered
What a fun day this was! A grandparents delight to be sure. The kids had a ball, all nine of them... meeting at a gym and playing on balance beams, swinging from rings, jumping in the air, rolling in a barrel, running, jumping, flying in the air...they had a ball and I was exhausted when they were done! Each child had her/his own little ice cream cake. Before they were out of their boxes GD was peeking in her box with little face pressed up against the cardboard reporting to me: "It has a fairy on it, it's purple and (in a sing song voice) it is so beautiful!" GS's cake had a football, grass, and sky as was his wish. The kids really enjoyed and spent a lot of energy flying on these rings and running, jumping, rolling, playing in the gym for what felt like hours to me! Daughter and grand daughter jumping in air. Grandpa and Grandson having some special soccer moments together! GD playing witch in just one of many new dress up outfits...she must have changed clothes ten times before the sun went down! And she really LOVED seeing her art on quilt. Her little fingers traced her drawing...and how I wished I could be inside her head reading her thoughts at this time.
