I took my boys to a party today. The purpose of the party was to celebrate the two kid's birthdays (one in Daniel's class, one a grade below Jack) and also for the family to just have one big party in the summer for family, friends and neighbours.
Abundant food and drink for kids & adults (yes beer & wine too)
A face painter
Two balloon artists
An ice cream truck that parked for 2 hours and let kids get whatever they wanted, for free, the whole time
A bouncy castle
I leaned over and whispered to a friend of mine "your kid's birthday party was shit compared to this". Hahaha!
