After a 6 day delay, we had Marino's rescheduled birthday party later the same week of the storm. We were fortunate that a lot of his friends were still able to attend. As expected, Marino had a great time. He requested this party specifically (at Pump It Up, a bounce house place). We did the "glow party" where they turn down the lights and give the kids glow in the dark necklaces (and a flashing LED wand for the birthday boy). About halfway through the party we ended up asking for the lights back on, since there were some falls in the more complicated bouncy houses).
All the kids seemed to enjoy themselves. Mine especially!
Here's some of the kids at the party: Sophia, Ariana, Pacifico, Aiden, Marino, Sydney, Carter and Ike. Aiden is the big brother of Marino's friend from school, Tommy, but the two of them get along famously.

My friend Noah was soooo excited about the party. Before we went in the room, he said "Sara? This is going to be so great!"

Chalkboard mats and chalk were in the favor bags...here's Pacifico putting his to use.
We're so glad so many of our friends could make it, in spite of the short notice. Thanks for bouncing with us!
