I had to find the funny in my crankiness. I have to admit it was a selfish cranky in that I did not want to get up early on a Sunday morning and schlep my daughter to a birthday party about 40 minutes out of town. And to top it off, it was held in a goofy fun house. The high point was Skee Ball, something I hadn't played in years. Low point, grinning and bearing it when the kids climbed through germ pits, I mean tunnels. Check out those wild and crazy horses behind me.
The weather was not warm enough for summer attire, so I played it safe by wearing an older Anthro button down. The individual party rooms were hot and stuffy, so the thin cotton was a welcome relief. The room was also noisier than your average party, as the party chaperone assigned to us encouraged the kids to yell loudly from time to time. I would be engrossed in conversation with another parent, when all of a sudden, the kids would be yelling at the top of their lungs, "Happy Birthday!"
Putting cute owls before goofy dragons, I spotted these cookie jars in Cost Plus this past weekend. The two
on the right are sold as a set for $25.98 and the Aqua one is $12.99. That little pie bird/owl in the box bit the dust while I was doing some rearranging for this photo. My first casualty of blogging.
I just had to add the wacky dragon picture, even though the quality is not the best. I think dragons are cute, but during the party I kept thinking, most of these kids are eight, with three weeks of second grade left. Really?
