Happy 8th Birthday, Jadyn!!!!

TODAY is Jadyn's 8th Birthday!!! Our baby is getting so old!!! Jadyn's birthday party this year was yesterday at The Science Museum of Oklahoma (f/k/a The Omniplex). It was a pretty big crowd--and I was exhausted by the end of the day. The kids got to go play on the playground for about 30 minutes and then they returned to our designated party room for a liquid nitrogen demonstration. Our party host dipped many fun items in to the stuff and showed the kids how everything turned as hard as rock--including a banana that broke like glass when Jadyn threw it to the ground. At the end of the demo, Jadyn went up front and helped our party host make some sub-zero ice cream (that was apparently very tasty!) All in all, I believe that the kids had very much fun. Below are a couple of pictures from the party.

The Cake. As you can see, Jadyn is on the front of this cake made by her grandmother Anna (AK Bakes)--and she is with all three of her boyfriends: The Jonas Brothers!! (This also resembles the front of her invites, too--sans Jade's picture!)

Jadyn and her best friend tetter-tottering at the Museum's playground:

The Gift. Jadyn has been begging for a hamster for the past six months, so her dad and I bent the 'no pets' rule and surprised her with one. Here is her new hamster--and his name has gone from 'Harry' to 'Chocolate' to 'Goober' to 'Goofer' I guess he doesn't have a name right now, but he did bite Jadyn twice, so we're off to a good start!

Finally, here is a bonus picture of our kids before the party. Aren't they just precious??
