This weekend while my sister Ellen and niece Maddie were visiting for the first time from Paulsbo, Washington (near Seattle), and we were lucky enough to be invited to neighborkid Da’Sean’s birthday party! It was held at the end of our block, at Mary Dean Park. Here are some pictures from the celebration. Da’Sean’s dad Oscar came up with the idea of bobbing for apples…in ice water! Dareeona wound up being the most courageous, dunking her head in the freezing cold water time and again until she got an apple. Yikes!
Pin the Tail on the Donkey - on the jungle gym - was another big hit.
And of course, the swings are ALWAYS fun.
Glad my family was able to get a true sense of our neighborhood spirit - thanks, and happy birthday, Da'Sean!
