A Successful Birthday Party!

Well, as you might recall, my Little Bird turned EIGHT! We threw her a birthday party at Friendship Circle (the totally awesome place/organization dedicated to children with special needs and their families) and lots of her friends came. Here's a bit of what happened...

You didn't expect a boring message like
"Happy 8th Birthday" did you?

There were swings...

There were balls

There was purple sand!

There was music
Of course there was cotton candy and sno-cones

Best of all, there were friends....

With her pal Jacob

Hard to believe it's been 5+ years since these guys met in ABA/OT
Marni was assigned as Bird's Friendship Circle volunteer about 4 years ago and it was a match made in heaven. She surprised us by coming home from college to attend the party and get a special hug from the birthday girl!!

(Not GFCF. We paid for that later in the week)

I am smiling because I had an enormous amount of help throwing this party from Ben and his parents.
Seriously, I could never have done any of it without them!
Also, smiling because I know I have a whole year until I do this all over again.

Happy Birthday, LB!!
