Kids Party

I know that for some people that when they throw parties they try to out do themselves and to try to out do everyone else. Now, this makes for a good party but come on, some times going all out is just a little ridiculous. I spent about thirty minutes this passed Saturday talking photo booth rental while I was at a child’s birthday party. Let me back up here and explain a few things, this may get a little confusing so I’ll try not to mess this up. My brother Todd married a girl named Jessica, Jessica has a sister named Natalie. Natalie married Chuck and they have two kids, a girl named Amber and a boy named Nick. It was Nick’s 8th birthday one day this passed week and Natalie rented a hall to have the party at, yes she rented a hall, she invites so many people to her children’s birthday parties that she needs a hall.

Anyways, if you haven’t guessed yet she had a photo booth at Nicks party and obviously it was a big hit. Kids and adults can enjoy a photo booth, and I get, they are a lot of fun. But seriously, a photo booth at a kid’s birthday party? Natalie always goes over and beyond what is considered normal, when she had Amber, her registry was twenty five pages long. I almost passed out when the pages kept printing. But back to the party, I always enjoy myself at her parties, she does know how to do it but I still think that it was just a little too much. It’s like what is she going to do for his 9th birthday? I don’t know but I’m sure I’ll be there. She also loves to boast so she was talking about the photo booth all night and we had a very long conversation about how she thinks that everyone should have them at their kids party. She likes to be a trend setter but I think the trends she is trying to start are just a little bit out of people’s ranges. If only we all had that much money to spend our kids birthday parties.

One good thing is that she didn’t have it catered, not sure if I could have handled that. Her family is full of cooks who love to cook so a lot of people brought food, I did too actually. I’m not a cook like them but I do have one or two dishes that I can make, so I brought some food for the appetizers. And there was a lot of food as well there let me tell you, four tables of food. Appetizers, side dishes, main courses and of course desserts. And not just one cake for the birthday boy, cookies, cupcakes, brownies and other such goodies filled the table. No one left their hungry and most took leftovers home for tomorrow. Now, I know that I talked a lot of shit about this party but I should say that I do like Natalie, we get along real well and I love going to her parties because she knows how to throw one and I always have a good time!
