Happy Birthday Samantha!
A couple of weeks ago, Samantha turned 11. She went back and forth on what she wanted to do for her birthday, and finally decided to have dinner at Olive Garden on her actual birthday (with just family) and then a party at the Laser Tag place for her friends.
Laser Tag was pretty neat. They had a party room where we could set up, and the kids played two different games of Laser Tag, with snacks in between and cake afterwards. Samantha initially wanted cupcakes and then we found these fun "star shaped" mini cakes so we made those and each person got their own little mini cake to eat.
Samantha even invited the younger brother of a friend of hers so Michael would have someone to play with.
It was a nice afternoon but, as always, quite exhausting, and I was just happy that I didn't have to clean up remnants of a party at home when it was all over!
