Darius' birthday party is this afternoon. Its being held at a friend's home so that the kids have a huge backyard to run around and play. So... yesterday was the start of our rainy season. Backyard. Rain. Kids. I'm holding out for a break in the rain this afternoon. We'll just have to wait and see, but I sure hope it happens.
My daughter (aka 'mom') has always been big on birthday parties. There has been a few times when she was disappointed. She invites everyone she can think of but often they don't show up. Its sad to see her disappointment, but its one of the things life teaches us.
