Well, sort of.
Katherine has been planning and hoping for a Sweet 16 party since, well, since she first heard of such things back when her age was reckoned in single digits.
But Katherine was born just before Christmas, and her birthday often gets buried in the other massively celebrated birthday around that time. Last year, especially, was not a great time. We were in the middle of moving - it looked at one point we might move right on the girl's birthday - so she decided to move the whole event to June, and celebrate Sweet 16.5.
She did it up right - right from the custom-made invitations (she knows this guy who teaches graphics at Central) to borrowing a friend's pool to make it a pool party.
Christiana and Jani had a great time!
Patterson, whose pool was used, offers a choice of implements to cut the ice cream cake.
Ya know, these $6 pizzas from Little Caesar's aren't too bad, especially when you're wet and hungry!
And of course, the Drummer is close by, making sure everything is just perfect.
