Its a BIG one.
It deserves a party.
Especially when the 10 year old is as SPECIAL as Ezekiel.
So when Sunday finally arrived…he was STOKED.
He could hardly wait till 5pm.
We cleaned, hung the lights, cooked the food, and set up the backyard….
all in preparation for the big “10th Birthday Movie Mash up!”
The party was amazing.
31 kids from the ages of 15 years to 5 months.
It was a LOVE fest of friends and family.
We all ate Jays famous HOMEMADE CLAM CHOWDER and Taco soup.
And Josiah's Mom made Zeek 2 cakes.
She made him a guitar cake AND a chocolate cheesecake.
Jay set up his sound system so we had FULL MUSIC all night long.
AND our dear friend Matty brought his famous bean bag toss.
The blessing of LIFE were so evident that day.
Everywhere you looked there was a little pocket of LOVE.
on the Trampoline
in the kitchen.
Then…when the night fell…
we turned on the movie projector and watched “How to Train a Dragon” under the stars …Fireside!!
Could it have been more cool????
At about 10pm everyone was leaving and the Night was getting settled in…
The tents were set up.
1 girls tent with 4 girls.
1 boys tent with 6 boys.
1 FULL MOON.
and 1 very LOVING Daddy who was willing to sleep outside with them.
It is an amazing thing to watch Jay CONSTANTLY give the kids the gift of MEMORIES.
Gifts money CAN’T buy.
Memories that can only be bought with the currency of TIME.
This party was AMAZING.
Memories were made.
Friends and fellowship.
All under a HUGE full moon.
