It was a flurry of children's birthday parties this weekend. Such is life with two small kids. Luckily this weekend the parties were hosted by friends, which always makes it more enjoyable for us grown ups. One even ended with someone giving us free, fifth row tickets to the Wiggles show that they weren't going to use. The Wiggles guys do look to be getting a little, um, advanced with age, but they definitely still know how to keep kids enthralled. I can't believe how hokey it all is, but it works. Somehow.
