Emma started this tradition years ago. Each birthday the child (Isaac in this case) will receive the same number of balloons as the age they are turning. Cosette got 8 this year and Ethan will get 5 in November. Perhaps we should invest in a balloon company. We can't wait till they are all turning 18 or 25 or 30 oh my.
When we asked Isaac what he wanted for his cake he said he wanted PIZZA. So that is what his cake was this year. Pepperoni pizza and all the kids loved it. Emma kept them entertained with Power Ranger themed games which was all the normal party games with a power ranger name. Funny how the kids loved it even more with just a hint of action.
