Our resident Jamie,
fearless leader of this party
consisting of 14 kids and
a LOT of grown-ups!
Our resident Adams--
Grandpa led the paper folding myth
beginning with a sheet of typing paper
and getting progressively larger until
the ginormous blue tarp!
JDS led the Buttered Bread myth.
Here COS tests the myth with her
sweet little friend, Ashton, waiting for her turn.
Then it was present-opening time...
...followed by a hot dog and chip lunch.
The oh-so-happy b'day boy!
AMS led this icy challenge--
Which team can get their toy free
from the block of ice in the shortest amount
of time? Even all of the adults played along!
G'ma and Aunt Angie's team showing off their
newly de-iced toy.
Simon led the Walking On Water myth,
which the kids LOVED because it
got them so dirty!
Simon led the granddaddy of them all--
the Mentos/Diet Coke experiment,
which went off with a BANG!
JSS made the biggest impact with his...
a rocket! The thing went at least 30 feet
into the air and got huge oohs
& ahhhs from the spectators,
who got to enjoy partially melted cake
and ice cream while they
watched the show from our driveway.
Grand finale myth...
Which works better on a slip & slide,
knees or stomach?
(Great way to clean up the kids
before their parents arrived, too!)
