By the Numbers

35: Number of people who were at our house yesterday for a yummy Memorial Day BBQ with homemade rootbeer & ice cream, pasta & cookie salads, chips, desserts, etc.
19: Number of those in attendance that were children age 5 and under.


200+: Number of times kids went down the Slip 'n Slide.


1: Number of kids that were "bowled" down the Slip 'n Slide.


15+: Pounds of food that didn't get eaten even though we all pigged out.


10 or so: Number of flies I killed in the house trying to eat that left over food.


11: Number of hours my kids slept after this exciting day.


0: Number of fights I witnessed between the kids (at least I didn't see any...)

Check out my blog for the bowling in action! If you look upclose..Elodie's body is fully extended! Pretty funny! Good thing our kids are so forgiving!

It looks like you had fun and the weather was so perfect too! And congratulations on having a boy! I'm very into super-masculine names like Rocky, Bear, Thor, and Bronco but my husband will never concede so all I can do is plant the idea in other people's mind.

Cute idea with the numbers. Sorry we missed you. It sounds like you didn't starve without our chips!

What an awesome party!! We'll definitely have to crash it next time. Everyone looks like they are having too much fun! You don't even look stressed in the pic, you're going to have to teach me how you do that?
