This year we decided on a camping theme for the birthday party. It was a huge hit. We set up a tent and made a fire out of red and orange tissue paper and real wood (thanks Dad for chopping logs for me). It was so cute even though it was indoors. When everyone arrived, we ate BBQ hotdogs and salads and drank juice boxes and rootbeer. Then we gave the kids a "bug-bag" and their own flashlight and we went on a bug hunt throughout the house. We turned the lights off for more effect and the kids loved it. After our bug hunt, we sat around the campfire and Uncle Kurtis and Grandma Kathie told scary stories in the dark-the kids thought the flashlights were the coolest thing ever :) Then Grandpa Wayne got his guitar out and we sang camp songs. Next we opened presents and then ate bug cupcakes and ice-cream. It was so much fun. Thanks to everyone who helped make Gray's birthday so special!
