Fishy Birthday

It's official! My Glo Worm has reached double digits!  Gloria wanted a swimming party with an aquarium theme for her 10th birthday this year.  We rented a room at a local rec center and invited several of her friends to come swim with us and then come to our house for a sleep over.

We bought one of those inserts for a fish tank that goes along the back wall to make it look like the ocean.  We hung it on the wall and let Gloria and her friends take pictures in front of it making fish faces.  That was a hit.  She also loved her cake and helped pick out the decorations.  The rocks at the bottom of the "fish tank" are actually chocolate!  Then we added Swedish Fish and gummy octopi.

We were all happy that our former foster daughter, "Junie B.", got to come, too.  The girls played a silly "Truth or Dare" card game down in the basement and ate junk food and pizza until they were ready to pass out from a sugar coma.  Gloria declared it one of her best birthdays ever!
