Party at the (sing it) YMCA!

Our kids don't have large birthday parties every year...we just don't do it...never have and never will. 
Mean huh?

Well, its not really to be mean.  We have other good reasons and it works out for our family.
They have special birthdays and that's what counts!

But, occasionally its time for a party and this year was Ivan's turn!  Since we've been involved with the Y so much with swimming, we decided to have it there.  One thing I like to make sure of with big parties is that someone else handles the clean up!

Here's some highlights...
And I'd like to say a special thanks to Jack who helped me with the party decorating!

Hannah always manages to get a pair of rabbit ears in the picture!  Yes, rabbit ears!  When they're stuck over your brother's head, I don't think you can get away with calling them a peace sign.

An hour of swimming with a giant slide...that I managed to get no pictures of...

This picture's for you Colin!

Happy 9th birthday buddy...hope you had fun!


  1. So glad to see you, Ivan, enjoying yourself with your friends and sharing good food and play. We enjoy seeing all you and your sisters are doing this summer. We love you.

  2. Thank you for sending a comment. I also wonder what you're doing in Texas.
    Love, Ivan

  3. Thumbs up, Ivan! It looks like a very fun and happy party. Love you.
