Dalton's birthday was back in February. Our friend had just opened up a new indoor play space called Jump Around Utah, so we got a great deal and booked it for his party. He invited a ton of boys...all of his buddies from school, and they had a blast.
We had told Dalton that he was possibly going to get an XBox for his birthday. But he was stressing. We said that maybe we'd have to get it after the party or another day because they were out of them at the store. Nothing like lying to your kid in the spirit of his birthday just long enough to cause him to have heart palpitations and feel unloved, before you let him in on the birthday surprise. I had wrapped the XBox and put a card on it from Grandma Martha. I told him and his friends that it was a set of scriptures on video from his Grandma, which of course he believed. He had opened all of his presents when we let him open that one, and boy was he happy.
Lots of sweaty, sugar filled kids had a great time. We did a toast to Dalton. He got lots of cards that sang. His Aunt Kristen gave him a gag gift that made him and his friends laugh- a Justin Beiber t-shirt. It was a great day. LOVE HIM.
