Two little boys who go to church with us had their birthday party together today. Collin turned 8 and Matthew turned 9. Although we don't have small children anymore to attend parties such as these, we are always blessed to be included. We always enjoy helping them celebrate and love being a part of the kids' lives who we teach in Sunday School and Kids Klub at church.
The party was a lot of fun for all the kids and even all the adults. There were lots of games and activities planned and even the adults got to get in on the fun! The kids played musical chairs, got wet on the slip 'n' slide, and took turns swinging at the pinata. Everyone (adults included) got in on an egg relay and an egg toss.
Katie was the first one out in Musical Chairs and her heart was broken so I took her off to the side and sidetracked her with helping me take pictures. We didn't know that while we did that Erica was snapping our picture. Here, Erica shows Katie the pictures she took of us.

This little guy, Bryson, was sooo cute as he swung his bat!!! He is the grandson of our friends David and Linda and cousin to both birthday boys.
All of us in various rows as we toss eggs to our partner. Sorry I broke our egg, Erica!!! Marty and Erica's son Mathew won this game!

I helped Katie play the egg relay game. She was very nervous that she'd drop our egg and said, "Mrs. Tammy you'd better do this, I'm not very good at it." But Katie did great!!!
Denise so carefully carrying her egg in a spoon.
