Stella's Rock Climbing Birthday Party, Part 2

Here's our extreme 9 year old...
I love this pic of Caroline in action...
A group of very adventurous girls...
Time for some cake!
We did candles twice so that she could have regular candles and the singing spinning candle...
Cille and Molly taking a break for some cake...
Even Claire climbed the wall!
This dude's an old pro...

Sweet sisters helping each other get harnessed up...
The smaller ones were really stoic about the whole thing...
Corinne loved spending time with baby Emi...
And her flamingo from "Miss 'Tacy," as she calls her...

One girl going up, one girl going down.  The whole day was like a Dr. Seuss book...
Corinne wanted a turn and was incensed that she did not have her harness...
But Pawpaw is more harness than any kid needs...
Our Sharbie Barbies were too light to come down on their own, so we pulled them down with a rope...


Even the big brothers took a climb...


Sisters at the summit...




Why was Watts so happy?
Because he finally had other boys to play with...

We left the wall up overnight and hit it again in our jammies the next day...
Corinne finally got her harness!

And our weekend ended at urgent care, as all good parties do.  Stella was a casualty of the bouncer, not the rock wall.  It was time to pick it up, but she wanted to do a trick for Dad "one more time."  Parents: always beware of the words "one more time."  They lead to things like sprained ligaments...
