Palmer chose to have a basketball themed party this year. We had 20 kids here for the party and a lot of extended family came by too. Everyone in attendance signed a basketball for Palmer to keep as a memento.
We served pizza, vegetables and dip and cheeseballs for lunch.
We played reverse charades with basketball terms, pass the ball (played like hot potato) and red rover (I tied this one in to the theme because basketball players are traded to different teams). Red rover was really fun, but a bit more dangerous than I had anticipated. We had to eventually end the game because I was afraid someone was going to break an arm, or get whiplash!
Palmer was spoiled with presents. Some of his favorites were: a fidget spinner, fighting robots, Snap Circuits, a kids cookbook, a remote control car, and of course money. We are taking him to see Dan TDM Live in August for his gift. He is a big fan of Dan and had been watching intently to see if he was coming to Salt Lake on tour. He announced his tour dates, and Salt Lake was not on the list. Greg and I thought we were off the hook, haha! Then he added a few shows, Salt Lake included and Palmer was jumping off the walls, he was so exited about it.
Thanks family and friends who came to celebrate Palmer's 9th birthday with us! The party was a great success and the birthday boy had a wonderful time!
