One of my nephews has been wanting to come sleep over for quite a long time. I was told he needed nothing for his birthday, but he would love to come to our house, so we brought him home with us when we went down for the 4th of July.
The next day we went to a sprinkler park, one of man's best inventions! They played for hours and then we got milk shakes. He fell asleep in the car after two sips I think. He and Kate had a great time playing games, watching a movie and playing in our sprinkler at home. You can never have too much water play.
There were quite a few tears at bed time, but then the next morning he said he wanted to stay another night! LOL I'm glad he didn't seem too traumatized by the previous night.
We had a great time! I'd love to try to make this a birthday tradition for all of my nieces and nephews!
