|Ready to go to Adam's party. The family didn't go, but I went because I was both driving him and paying for it. Jessica was suppose to go but forgot to take off of work. So Jasmine went along to keep me company.|
|She was pretty wiped out after her game and then a two-mile run to prepare for next Saturday's 5K so she rested once she was ready for the party.|
|Jayden doesn't need an excuse to take it easy. She's a cat. It's what she does.|
|We had his party at Genghis Grill. I thought it would be more interesting than just going to Pizza Hut, but I think they would have been fine anywhere. They weren't all that impressed with choosing the ingredients and watching their food cook.|
|Jasmine and I sat at a little table across from them. No one needs his/her mother sitting right next to him/her at a party.|
|I had gotten Adam a cake not knowing that one of his friend's mom makes cakes and was making one for him. That one was better because she knows Adam and made it very personal for him.|
|One friend got him Vans.|
|Another got him an expensive watch. When did kids start buying each other such expensive gifts? Some of the friends took up a collection and gave him a wad of cash.|
|My mom, sister and brother put money together and got him the most deluxe tracfone and a minutes card.|
|I didn't want him to guess what I got him, so I wrapped a 2.5 pound weight and put it in the bottom of a box that was bigger than needed for his present.|
|It was really an iPod touch (4th generation), and I think he was really surprised.|
Jasmine got him Reese's, and Ty and Jessica both got him small gifts.
The one thing I didn't do was get a picture of him and I together. I sent him and his friends off to the movies with an 11 p.m. curfew since he has to be up early for church tomorrow.
