The best part of being a procrastinator is that you can pull off a surprise party pretty easily. I had called A&H pumpkin patch a couple of weeks before his b day because that is where he had wanted to have it. Well, the friendly fire and zipline wouldn't be open until
May. So I had suggested we have a 6th grade graduation party there in May in lieu of a birthday party. He was fine with that.
Meanwhile, I called the natatorium to see about having a party there. Yes, they had never done parties but were open to it and we pretty much had the pool to ourselves for 3 hours and classroom available to us on his b-day. Woop woop! No games planned, just a bunch of active tweeners swimming for a few hours, it worked out great.
We waited for him in the classroom, didn't get a chance to turn out the lights or hide, but he was pretty shocked. I don't think he could see who all was there because he was blinded by silly string.
the best group pic I could get
I don't know if they were following "the no dunking" rule, or any rules for that matter.
I love that Xander has a good relationship with girls & good taste in friends too:)
I think Grant should be recruited to the high school diving team already, he was bringing back some memories of several hours of practice with Coach Days on these boards.
Xander reenacted his surprise several times;)
No close ups of the box mixed cupcakes, must not have been terrible because they went for seconds.
Xander giving goodbye hugs, love Brady's smile, reminds me of Jenny in this pic:)
Now Monroe and Jude are asking for surprise parties;)

The kids were off for Spring Break so there is no spring cleaning going on here,
otherwise there would be;)
Limbo, one of my favorites.
I thought this picture looked fake.

some relaxed faces of relief following the meet
Monroe had an awesome cheering section so thankful for family and friends who will come watch a 3+ hour meet to watch her compete less than 5 minutes, that is some loyalty. (Although I am not sure how many routines the boys actually watched;)
Nice to have the meet so close in Wamego, the awards & meet was a bit of a cluster, but worth it to be able to take all these little friends along! Wesley, Avery, Grayson, Monroe & Kennady
Pary burb, love model Wesley in this pic, or actually every picture...
Kenzie made my life so much easier, can she come live with me please?
