When my parents came, they brought the bubble machine. Awesomosity ensued.
There were some balloons up as decoration, and Shae was very intrigued by her reflection in the Mylar. She kept yelling, "I can SEE myself!"
She also liked the balloon weights. (So do the cats -- we brought a balloon with a weight home, and there is a lot of jockeying for position between Shae and the furbabies.)
Probably the only time you'll ever see me put this in writing anywhere: Go Vols!
Smiles all around, which is as ringing an endorsement of a party as you're ever going to get. Thanks Phil and Kim!
