Ava's Almost 5th Birthday

Ava's birthday was a huge success and on a good note for me-pretty stress-less.
We had a great number of kids about 11 and they were all fantastic. She has some really good friends.
This was a perfect age as she was excited and grateful for each gift no matter how big or small.
Ryan Family Amusements also did a terrific job. The employee helped 2 parties just enough that we had our own party but she lead us thru the time schedule we needed to fit into.
The kids started out with some bowling and as some guests came late we were able to just add them to a team. They lasted about 45 minutes before myself and and another boy were playing for about 4 kids who had had enough.

Perfect because just as they were dropping out of bowling it was time for Ava to get into the ticket booth. I didn't even know she was going to be able to do this. How Funny. They put goggles on her and started the fan which blew tickets all over the place and she had to catch as many as she could. I almost wish I had video of it but I was actually having too much fun to take a ton of photos.

Next he hit the birthday room for cake and presents. They all did excellent and she got a wide variety of gifts from Spiderman to Tangled Barbie stuff which is exactly what she is interested in. She also got a dress picked out by her "friend" Sam from preschool. He was sure to tell me to look at the flowers on it. Good Work Ava, you always want to find a boy who likes to buy you pretty dresses.:)

She is busy today with a ton of bubbles and I have already lost at a game of Spiderman Chutes and Ladders.
Thank You to everyone who came and might be reading.
This is what my ride home was like:
