Well the Smedley family is getting HUGE...I think we have a birthday party almost every weekend of the year now, haha. Recently, we had Little John's and within the last week, my dad turned 60 and AJ turned 8! It's always a great party being around this goofy, fun-loving bunch so I'm always looking forward to whatever they plan.
LJ'S party was (of course!) Minecraft themed (still don't get the appeal of that game!). He'd drawn little pictures and had them hanging all over the walls, Minecraft blocks and animals were perched and hanging from every corner and the cake was cut into square chunks with little block characters all over it. The kids played video games, LJ got fake poop for his present from Aaron and I...and we all had a blocky blast!
My dad's 60th, my mom had us all meet at a car junkyard (one of his fav places to shop!). We walked around looking for parts, played a little bit of Marco Polo trying to find people in the sea of cars and even had candles and a cake on one of the hoods! People thought we were cray, I'm sure, but that's how we roll!
For AJ's party, we skated! It was so much fun!! Pretty sure I haven't done that in about 5 years...but it was a great time and by the end of the party, we'd all pretty much gotten the hang of it, haha.
