Way back in May, Lily turned 4 years old. The girl is a giant…even before her 4th birthday she was wearing size 6 clothes. That means she was 3 years old and wearing clothes that an average 6 year old would wear! But, she is also pretty athletic, as noted by her choice of a birthday party. She wanted a “Bouncy Tea Party.” So, I found the cheapest and closest place available and ended up just down the street at Skywalkers, a gymnastics/trampoline place. I brought along a few scraps of fabric to decorate the tables and last year’s Cat party‘s bunting. I also inherited a lovely tea set from my mom’s Aunt Juanita. I was nervous about having an antique glass tea cup for every kid, but not one plate or cup was broken! It’s better that stuff is used than just sitting around taking up space,right? Lily had a great time at her party and I was exhausted. This next year, the birthday parties won’t be nearly as extravagant.
