Birthday Party

Since we were in Nebraska for The Artist's birthday, we held a party last weekend for him.  He had the great idea to have a progressive park party.  We invited a bunch of his friends to join us as we went to four of his favorite parks. 

The first one was fun - and nice and shady:

The second was was awesome, but in the full sun.  It lent itself to fun pictures, though:

Isn't this the coolest climbing structure ever?

We went to two more shady parks and ended up back at our house for pizza and air conditioning.  The Artist doesn't like cake, so he had popsicles after we sang him happy birthday.

Many thanks to all his friends who made his birthday special, and especially to EBY for driving the other van full of loud, hot, sweaty, amazing kids from adventure to adventure.
