You know how I feel about birthday parties. I’m a party pooper. So as Katie’s seventh birthday approached, I gave her two options: 1) Have a party with her friends, but no present from Mom and Dad, or 2) Pick one friend to spend the day with in any way you want, and there will be a present too! She chose option #2, and decided to take her cousin Adam to Six Flags.
It was a REALLY hot day. I mean REALLY. But Katie thoroughly enjoyed herself, and so did Adam. Adam’s mom went with us, and his dad met us later. We coincidentally met up with some other family friends too, so it was a fun party time for all of us. I felt like I needed to have the layers of dirt and sweat scraped off me at the end of the day, but Katie’s smile made it a little less icky.
