Our family doesn't do sleepovers, but we all agreed that ten years old is a milestone birthday to celebrate. So we created a 10 am to 10 pm birthday party for Mali this year. Her friends came over after church to hang out and prep for the rest of the day. We then headed to a gymnastics studio for the main event  (we had won a party from there at a charity auction with Jonathan's work) and a quick lunch. So much fun! The studio had a party limit of 16 guests so the younger girls each brought a friend along too. (Thanks to Grandma Sandy and Grandpa for watching the twins during their naptime!) All the girls loved it. We used up any remaining energy they had with a trip to the Tosa Pool that even the twins got to enjoy.  The birthday girl had requested a baked potato bar for dinner that night after that as well as Italian Ice for her treat. The big girls all collapsed in front of a movie until the 10 pm pick-up time arrived. It was a busy but sweet and fun day for our girl. She is SUCH a celebrating-personality that it was great to watch her plans all fall into place. And someday soon we hope to listen to her play her new guitar!
