Swim Party

Yesterday was the first day of Spring and this is what we woke up to...
....Snow! So when the grandchildren were told that they were going to their cousin's birthday party and they needed their swimsuits because it was a swim party they thought we adults were nuts. One even proclaimed they were NOT going swimming. When he was told that it was going to be inside he responded, "It better be a BIG building."
When we got to the YMCA one of the grandchildren with me claimed, "That IS a big building." We were greeted in the lobby by the birthday girl's father and lead back to the room where the birthday girl sat in her balloon adorned chair awaiting every one's arrival.
Her birthday cake was a lovely princess Barbie number made by her aunt.
Y staff hosted the party...
The first order of events was blowing out the candle...

...then singing Happy Birthday and the eating of cake and ice cream.
Then on to the opening of the gifts... with plenty of help from friends and family.
Dolls, dolls and more dolls and a carrier to haul the dolls around in. Money is always appreciated.
Then the Y staff lined them all up and lead them down the hall to the family locker room to get into their swimsuits and into the pool.
The pool was pretty popular today with snow on the ground outside but it wasn't too overly crowed.
All the grands agreed that it was a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday.

I have to say that was a great way to have fun during our weekend snow day! I'm sure the kids enjoyed swimming inside on such a blustery day. :)

OG - The kids really did have a blast. They thought that was the best party ever. It made it especially nice with the snow on the ground outside. :)
