He totally looks like an 8-year old. Sigh.
Miles' party was right after school. In fact, 3 kids got to walk home with us and that was super fun. Miles invited 5 classmates - a great number in my opinion! 4 came and it was pretty much the perfect number. We decided to do a "science theme" party - mind you, this was our first "real" party - i.e., with classmates and the works.
We made lava bottles. We dumped in alkaseltzer for the really cool bubbling effects. Then made it even cooler by placing them on top of a flashlight. It was awesome how much the kids just loved everything. Such a great group kiddos!
It was such a sweet birthday party and I adored the kids (my own and Miles' friends) so much. It was pretty much a pure delight.
Yea, happy birthday indeed!
P.S. His grandparents arrived right about dinner/cake/chaos time. Later that evening, after the friends had left and we had cleaned up, Miles opened his gifts. He loved/loves them all. Seriously. A good day truly.
