Birthday Celebration

Our youngest "Grand" is Zoey and she will be 5 years old on March 7th.  She had a birthday party last Sunday and invited her school friends.  Our DD arranged for the party to be at the gymnastics center where the girls go for lessons.  12 of Zoey's friends came to enjoy 90 minutes of free play and games with the apparatus on the gym floor.

I was armed with the camera to try and get pics of the kids having fun.  I was able to get a few, but those little people were moving around so quickly, I couldn't catch them in a good pose very often.  So what I got was a bunch of missing heads in the shot because they were jumping on the trampoline so fast. 

I was able to track Zoey down for a couple of good pics, along with big sister, Mackenzie.

When the free play was over, the group leader had the kids gather up for a photo op
Then it was time for pizza and cupcakes in the gym lunchroom. 
Zoey thought the day was good, but the Red Velvet cupcakes were great!!
After spending over 2 hours with lively, screaming 4 to 5 year olds, we remembered with fondness the peaceful days in Pismo Beach.  This coming Sunday, Zoey's real birthday, we will gather for a much quieter family celebration. 

Until next time.....so long for now!

Happy Birthday Zoey! You took some very good pictures - the energy and noise came through. I'm glad you were there for the occasion.

I'm trying to get back to Sacramento in time for my son, Steven's birthday celebration on Saturday night. It will be held at Hoppy's Microbrewery, and I'm sure there will be lots of energy and noise. See, it never ends - Steve is 35!
