We made it home from California just in time for Brynne's 9th birthday. It was important to her that we be home so that she could spend her birthday with her whole family. On Thursday night we had my family over for her requested dinner of spaghetti and french bread, salad, fruit, and warm brownies with ice cream, whipped topping and cherries.
Then on Friday night we had her birthday party at the park with all of her friends. She wanted a Pokemon themed party.
We didn't plan anything for this party, just let the kids run and play. They had a lot of fun, and the weather was perfect!
