What a Way to Celebrate Your Birthday!

A few weeks ago we received in the mail a clever invitation from my nephew, Chris Griesemer, for a combination birthday and olympic celebration. Being a lucky boy born on 8/8/80, he got to celebrate his 28th birthday with the rest of the world through the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. So he invited some family and friends over to celebrate with him. This was no ordinary party, but was complete with activities for all ages and sizes!

Some of us gathered inside once the ceremonies started and were amazed by the "creative portion" as Bob Costas said of the Opening Ceremonies. Once it was time for the parade of nations, Andrea thought it was the best time to do the cake and presents!

I think we should get one of these so the girls can duke out their battles

In case you didn't notice, there was blue icing on the cake

Ellie said it was the best party she's ever been to. Thanks to Andrea and her family for the delicious food and wonderful company!

I'm so sad I missed this party. Why must my husband insist that we live in the blasted HOT place!
