After the birthday presents were opened and all the cupcakes were finished, the kids enjoyed a water balloon toss. The party ended with otter pops and a craft for all the kids to take with them. We had some very cute comments made by the kids at this party. One 11 year old boy asked if he could give us a hug and then asked if we could help him start us his own BBQ business. He said that he wanted to cook BBQ food and take it to the homeless people down by the bridge. We told him we would think about how to do this and talk with him at the next party. If anyone has any ideas for him, please let us know. What a heart!
Another little boy, a 9 year old came to us as we were getting ready to leave and asked, "How much do we have to pay you to come here?" We said, "Nothing at all. We come because we love to do this." He replied, "Wow, that is just great," and thanked us for being there. These kids are amazing and have the biggest hearts.
Thank you to all our volunteers: Janet Webster, Amy Taylor, Debbie Case, Julie McDonald, Julie Reimer, Sandy Johnson and Erika Anderson.
