We had Caroline's 9th birthday party at a local hotel. She invited her four closest friends for swimming, dinner, and a sleepover. They had a great time. Jamie and I (and Eliza) spent the night in the same hotel room. We were pretty pooped the next day.
These pics are terrible...I couldn't find my camera in all the chaos, so I used Caroline's, which is bad about red-eye. But maybe you can get the feel for the fun they had.
And now my little girl is 9 years old! Holy cow!
