Colin turned 4 on September 7, and his birthday party was actually the same morning as the Saints race. Dana decided to hold it at Johnny Bright playground, which was a really fun location. Jeff and I headed straight there after the race to join in the festivities.
The vibe was laidback and relaxed, and the kids had such a great time running around and climbing all over the play structure. Dana also decided two days before the party to make pool noodle lightsabers, so the kids enjoyed whacking each other with those as well. And Rory and Mary Jane just loved seeing each other outside of school. So sweet.
It ended up raining for a little bit, but that didn’t stop the kids. They continued to play, not caring one bit for the raindrops falling on them. Both of my boys got so wet and dirty and had a blast.
Then at the very end, after most people had left and Diana, Kenny, and I were helping Dana and Dave clean up, the five musketeers started singing the theme song from Nightmare Before Christmas. Too funny.
Happy happy birthday, Colin man…..
…..you’re one cool dude.
