We had a Pool party for Achu’s 6th birthday
The Pool Zone
- 2 six feet pools
- 4 beach balls
- 4 sponges
- 20 plus water balloons
- 5-6 water pistols
- 20-30 naughty kids :)
The Drool Zone
- Veg Sandwiches
- Fruit Salad
- Small Samosas
- Badam and Rose Milk
- Nannari Sherbet
The kids started coming in one by one. It was cute to start with. Then slowing things started getting out of control…in a very cute way though. I had planned for a few water games but neither did I have the time nor did the kids want to play. They were very happy being in the pool. So into the pool went the sponge, guns, water balloons and all.
While the kids had absolute fun the moms watched over. Some in deep thought and the others voiced out their fears of the anticipated flu.
I thought it would be a task to get the kids out of the pool so after one hour in the pool I started picking kids and handing them over to the moms to change their clothes. It worked. The kids came out and in half an hour they were all dressed for the party. Achu cut his super Six pool cake – A 3 kg black forest cake with the best ever rejuvenated choir performing the happy birthday song.
The kids had their fill and then started running around the house chasing each other. There was total chaos while the mothers were busy having their chat sessions. It went on like this until the guests both big and small left quite reluctantly.
The return gifts were denim caps and whistles. The kids checked their gifts before they left the party. So it was one squeaky ending afterall.
- The games didn’t happen
- The paper plates went missing
- Ran out of chips
Achu and the rest of the family had loads of fun. Am sure the kids had total fun. The moms must have been overwhelmed by the confusion and unorganized fun but finally they all agreed they were happy watching the kids have their dose of uncontrolled bliss
We were all totally tired after the party and vowed to get things a bit more in order the next time round.Good we had a lot of help around cause we had a lot of cleaning up to do……..
God Bless You Achu…..and the rest of your gang :)
