It was a crisp fall day, but it was not raining! Which was better than the original date for the party. Hurricane Irene crashed our original date of 8/28/11. Not sure who had more fun playing the games, the kids or the adults, but everyone seemed to enjoy their time celebrating the day with us.
Ice cream cone cupcakes, 6 layer Rainbow cake, candy buffet,
