The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

Archive for the tag “touchdown”

When was the last time you turned 10 years old?

We are in peak birthday season here in 3D.

My oldest just was spoiled, er, enjoyed her 10th birthday.

Yes double digits now!

Do you remember when….

I could still pick her up?

….and still get some air when I tossed her?

…or her getting married

Daddy, I want to get married. You don’t mind do you?

or learn to swim


Or get a new sister…

or become the first best present I ever had?

Kids ARE a gift!

Yes she is 10 now!

But I know what you are thinking…

We did not want to spoil her but treat her 10th birthday just like any other normal birthday…

…with breakfast in bed

Oh and there was the birthday party with 10 or 15 of her closest friends

It was at the trampoline place but she wanted it with a football theme..

She scored!

She soared high in her trampoline b day

Yes, jumping there in the center in the pink pants with her friends looking and falling around her.

I was kinda nervous watching her. Most of her girl friends are into gymnastics now and all of them were doing flips and cartwheels on the trampolines .

Each one would get bigger. Bigger flips. Bigger cartwheels, Bigger bounces.

Does anyone else hate the words from their kids, “Hey watch this and see what I can do?”

Remind me to tell you the story of when I tried to jump over the hammock..

Well the hours of play time were up and we herded all the sweaty happy kids to the pizzas and cakes. Mommy pointed to the ‘Thank You‘ notes that Dylan had typed up for each one of her party friends.

She said, “take a look at those.”

So I opened one up and read…


She typed these up two days earlier and printed them on the computer but nobody told her what to say.

She is a planner and an organizer like that. The over the top thank you note blew me away.

(I’m not that creative on my best day)

She has always been a’ happy kid’ since day one. And this note illustrates how thoughtful she is too. Yes every kid got this note.

Not every kid read them as i found several on the floor. But that is another story.

She had a great time.

We / they had a great time.

No bones were broken

or teeth lost.

….Another successful party then!

Happy  10th Birthday Dylan!

One down, one more party to go!

Have a great weekend everyone and a very special Easter holiday!

He has Risen!

I’ll try to do better next time knuckleheads.
