Alex's 12th Birthday Party

It looked iffy at first. Clouds and rain in the morning threatened our skateboarding plans. But just before the kids showed up, the skies cleared and we were gifted with an absolutely gorgeous fall day. Not too hot, not too cold. Just perfect. We headed over to the skatepark and everyone had a blast. We stayed for almost 4 hours. Then over to Bowen's house to jump on the tramp and pick up his gear. Then a stop by Kolton's to get Guitar Hero and finally home for pizza, cake, ice cream, video games and movies. They stayed up well past 3am. I did not. These are good kids. They just talked and watched TV and then passed out. Pancakes for breakfast and a little Mr. Bean while waiting for parents. It was a great party. I love listening to their squeaky tween voices. High pitched, then way low then back up again. They are silly, gross, and funny. A great age.

Great pics, Jennie. The cake was pretty cool, and it looked like the boys enjoyed it. I'd be skeered to let my boy skate like that without being in bubble wrap, but I guess if they've been doing it a long time, it's OK.
