This time we had a few firsts...
Not only was it outside, but we had our good friends and neighbors, Kellen, Kari, Miles and not quite two week old baby Damon join us, and a prize table!
(The only condition of our friends joining us was that they didn't laugh at what to us, is so normal...creative kids, unique activities, etc. etc.)
