Spider Man Party

   My nephew's son turned five years old a few weeks ago, and we attended his Spider Man birthday party.  This was the first time that friends of the birthday boy were invited without their parents.  After all, Kindergarten kids are beginning to feel independent.  It's a big deal to be dropped off, then picked up after the party.
   There was a bouncy house in the backyard, and games set up as well.  The boys were having a ball, and getting along very well together.  I forgot how loud little kids can get!
   Opening presents was organized chaos, and the biggest packages were opened first.   We all had a great time playing with the silly string, and the other toys.  The birthday boy made out like a bandit, and his friends hooted and howled over every gift.  I love seeing a kid's eyes pop out of their heads, when they realize they have gotten that special gift. It's like seeing pure joy!  Of course, new clothes can be a real buzz kill, but a new backpack filled with books and school supplies was a big hit. Some cool stuff that brought cheers were trucks, comic books, and a remote controlled motor cycle. A Spider man skate board and a fishing pole were among the crowd favorites.  The adults had fun because the kids were having a blast!
    Lunch was pizza and salad, and watermelon.  Cake and ice cream and juice boxes came later after singing Happy Birthday and blowing out candles.  It was the best day ever!!!  As one of the aunties, I could sit back,  take it all in and just enjoy it!  All the adults were pooped at the end of they day, and the kids went home with a sugar buzz.  That makes it a success!   I know that parties are a lot of work, but it sure is fun to attend them, and not have to do a lot.   I'm looking forward to the Holidays this year, because excited kids make it a lot more fun.....and the beat goes on.....the beat goes on........
