Our first slumber party

Since Sullivan didn't want a big party this year, he selected 4 friends to come over for a sleepover. He would ask me every hour how much longer until his friends arrived. He just couldn't wait. Once his friends arrived, we ate pizza and headed out to the back yard for some water fun. The slip n slide was there as well as 6 water guns for the kids to battle. That was lots of fun. I even had to add to the excitement a little.

After we were all soaked and after a game of duck duck goose,

we dried off to make ice cream sundaes and to sing happy birthday to my little guy.

The singing was his LEAST favorite part. After ice cream, it was time for presents and a movie....Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs then on to bed.

Sullivan and Darrius left the movie early to do a little reading on Sullivan's new Super Mario game book. All the kids slept up in the playroom and did pretty well. There were a few mumbles about forgotten eyedrops and a forgotten sleep medicine but beyond that, no requests for home. The boys enjoyed chatting upstairs but Sullivan was ready for bed and asked once if he could go to his own room to go to sleep.

Craig was able to get all the boys settled down and after a few minutes of Craig sitting up there, they all went to sleep (before midnight.)

All in all, I think it was a pretty successful evening and Sullivan enjoyed his first slumber party.

(Of course, little Ms. Channing wants to know when she gets to have a sleepover....she was told not until she's 8. Wonder if that will work?)
