Fact: Birthday cards are extremely popular in the US. Why so? That’s because 58% of all cards purchased in the US are birthday cards!
Charlie had a birthday, and he asked Mary and I if his friends could come over for a swim party. Duh, let’s do a party! The gaggle arrived at 11:00 AM and headed for the pool!
Teenagers: Those old enough to know everything. I overheard one of the teens say, “What do you call a Star Wars droid that takes the long way around? R2-Detour.
They were in the pool for a good two hours! After getting out of the pool, the boys disappeared, so we went to find them. Wow, almost like the 1950s again as the boys were in the street playing baseball. Joe flew my drone over the game and took videos.
It was a beautiful but warm day. I kept the house at 76 degrees, so the adults spent most of the time inside next to the chilled wine! There was a nice breeze so sitting on the patio was also an option.
We got the pizza from First Class Pizza and had it delivered. It was truly a fantastic pizza.
During gift opening and dessert time, Charlie made a killing. Joe and I offered to hold his money but were refused. We look honest, I think! I also heard one of the boys say, “Why can’t you hear a pterodactyl in the bathroom? It has a silent pee.”
The “cake” was excellent. We all walked around with blue frosting o our faces.
Joe’s inlaws and their friend Diane and sister Mary joined us. The ladies enjoyed the pool, especially after Joe and I moved the portable umbrella over to where they were sitting.
After everyone departed, we went into the pool to enjoy the 88 degrees water. After an hour, we were waterlogged and headed inside and watched some movies before crashing for the night.
We love family, and today was just super for everyone.
