well, the party went great. the weather was fabulous. he was and is still thrilled with his ping pong table. we play every day now.
they guests thoroughly enjoyed their dinners. they ate organic sliders, (made with organic grass fed beef and organic brioche slider buns from whole foods), crudite, chips and dip, drank sparkling mineral water, and celebrated with ice cream cake. and then there were the activities which proved quite popular: plenty of water balloons, ping pong. wiffle ball, basketball, yo yos, paper air planes. such nice boys.
what i love about this gathering is not just that it made my sons dreams come true, but how simple it was to pull off. the most important ingredient for a successful party, it seems to me, is some really nice guests. it isn't really about the food after all.
this weekend we are buckling down, the kids are studying for finals, and SAT subject tests, and playing a lot of baseball, as it is now little league playoff season. but we are ready (i hope).
have a great weekend. xo, g
