overkill?

We had Eleanor’s party this weekend. In hindsight it was totally unnecessary (she was perfectly happy with the way we celebrated with her on the actual day), but it was fun nonetheless. Three other friends (all boys) and their parents (and one younger sister, who is Oliver’s age) joined us for an afternoon of grilling and merriment. I prepared a scavenger hunt for the kids – magnifying glasses and all – but mostly they were interested in running around and screaming. Which is okay too. Thankfully it was a nice day.
Here  are a few photos because…well…why not?

(As a side note, I think there’s something to the rule of thumb: 1 child for every year of age. Although, 16 16 year-old girls…can you imagine?!)
