Yes we did.... and we survived

There were several different discussions on how A&A would celebrate their 8th bday party.  We wound up compromising (we have to do that a lot around here) with a big sleepover.  A&A each asked 5 kids to spend the night, so counting them we had 12 8-yr old.... girls and boys.... and yes, there were times I questioned that decision.

The evening consisted of trampoline time, boys vs girls kickball, hot dogs, marsh mellow roasting, birthday cake, fishing and lots of high pitched screaming (boys chasing girls).  We let the kids do their thing until around midnight and then it was time to at least lay down and start to settle in for sleep... we knew it wasn't going to be an easy task.  All kiddos were fast asleep by 1:15am which I thought was pretty good considering the scenario.  What I wasn't expecting was for everyone to be be awake by 6:15am!

We had a few mom's text us after the party telling us that their kiddos left the party saying it was the "best birthday party ever!" AND then their child proceeded to take a 2 hour nap!
