A Birthday Celebration!

We had a birthday!

This year was Brynnen's fifth birthday.
We decided that, with the number of birthday parties she's attended recently, it'd be nice for her if she could host a party. We talked about ice skating, and about a kite day, but we wound up going to Bullwinkle's Family Fun Center (located in scenic Wilsonville)

She was allowed to select five friends to invite to the party; and we were surprised at the sheer energy output of five five year olds (hint: it's greater than one twentyfive year old). We let them pig out on cake and ice cream first...
...And then they got to go climb on the play structure. It's about four stories tall (about 2 building stories, four stories of platforms and tunnels) and the noise level was deafening! They raced around this for about an hour and a half

After the playing, and the jumping, and the sliding, and the swinging, and the hopping, and the yelling, the kids got a chance to ride on a weird frog machine and go up and "fall" down a little. After that, they learned how to play foosball, and soccer, and many other arcade games. We were astounded at how good these kids were! Next year we're going to have a little competition.
