Old-fashoined Birthday Party Games
The games were cut short this year due to the storm moving in. We still did the best we could and conducted the Hula Hoop competitions. Everyone still had a great time!

Afternoon Thundershower
We were watching it on the radar and about 2:00 in the afternoon a pretty intense thunder storm moved in. After the worst of it, we all relaxed, moved the band inside and made the Car Show trophy presentations inside. We continued things outside with the water balloon toss game... in the rain!
