Birthday extravaganza

The plan for Erin's birthday was to have the kids slip and slide in the front yard. The forecast was for rain, but it held off for most of the day. At 4:30, scheduled time for the party to start, the neighborhood kids were the first to arrive. The big inflatable kiddie pool was filled up, the slip n slide was in place, but the clouds were dark and I heard thunder. Fearing that the kids would be struck by lightning, I told everyon not to get in the pool. Just then the raindrops started to fall. So up to the playroom we went.

But 20 minutes later, the rain stopped and the sky wasn't quite so black, so everyone was in the kiddie pool and slippin and slidin on the slip n slide. Then lots of pizza and cake was consumed. A great party, after all!
