I can breathe a sigh of relief now. The triple birthday party is under my belt. This year, we just did family and that was enough! We now have a 16 year old (clear the roads, especially Main Street), a 14 year old, and a 12 year old! Two in high school and one in middle school. Time flies when you’re having fun!
