After my kids turn twelve then they do not get anymore friend birthday parties. When you have five kids it just gets too expensive. This year Anne turned twelve and had her last friend party. This year she wanted to have a swim party. It almost didn’t happen because the weather was not cooperating. Luckily the weather cleared in time for her party and she and her friends were able to go to the community pool and go swimming. Then they came back to the house and played some games, ate pizza, ate cake and ice cream, opened presents, and had a good time. I think Anne had fun and it was nice to be able to meet her friends from school(her party was on the last day of school).
