Will and I went to a birthday party for his new school best friend, Chance. Chance lives in downtown Micanopy in one of the beautiful historic houses. I didn't think to take a picture of it, but you can see it at the end of the Cholokka Blvd. They've lived in the house about 10 years and done lots of remodeling to it. Will is probably going to spend a lot of time there in the next couple of years. Chance's mom also has a really cute hair salon in the back of the house that I might just have to try sometime.
Chance's parents apparently throw really good parties. This was one of the best kid birthday parties that I've ever been to. The whole thing was Star Wars themed which Will loved. They had finger foods like Wookie Cookies, Padawan Pizza, Darth Vader Dip. They did a Jedi training obstacle course, light sabers, and had a big blow up slide thing. Will had a great time and I got to meet some of the other moms from Will's class.
Will wanted to look really nice for the party, so he wore his cool cap. It was a good thing he did cause it started getting colder and probably kept his head pretty warm.
This was the blow up thing. We've never been to a party with one. There were only about 15 kids there, so they didn't have to wait in line and got to play on it a lot.
They also had a Millenium Falcon set up which the kids played with for a long time. John had one of these as a kid and still talks about it regularly. We might have to get one for Will (and John).
Another party highlight was a visit from Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper (aka uncles). They were good sports.
I hope Will doesn't expect anything like for this party. I don't think I could top it (or would want to).
