This was such a great day! Lars just loved his party and all of his friends had such a great time. We had many little ones and there were very few outbursts. Kudos to Nora for such a great idea with the Scanlon gym. It was perfect!
Second to the idea of forgoing gifts and having guests bring donations for the crisis center. I do not yet know the poundage of our donation but it likely outweighed our 3 guests of honor. I think our children really understood the lesson that birthdays are about celebrating with friends and giving back to others. We think this is an important message and we want this to be the one that sticks with our children.
Thanks all who came, it was a blast. It is likely a more detailed blog will follow later this week.
