Claire's Fifth Birthday Party!

So for Claire's 5th Birthday Party we thought it would be fun to have a "kids only" faux slumber party.   The party was from 5-8pm and on the invit
e we told the parents to leave the kids and go on a date (I even took a couple younger sisters, so the parents co
uld really be free for the evening).  Well, that left Nathan and I alone with 13 party-ready 5 and 3 year olds.  Well the party was a blast for the girls and a
 success overall...but Nathan and I did learn some valuable lessons.
1) We will never do that again :)
2)  Parties should never be longer than 2 hours (unless parents are there too)
3) When you plan party activities that will take up time assume they will take up half the time you think they will take.
4)If you are going to do a party without the parents, a
sk a teenager to come and help!

Poor Nathan must have been tired from a long day at the store, but he pulled it out and took some great pics at the are some

Happy 5th Claire!
