Party FAQ's

FAQ's about Jonah's birthday party:

Q:  Who starts a party at 10:00 in the morning?
A:  We do!

Q:  Why does the party start so early?
A:  Because it's a parade party.  Parades are in the morning.  Unless it's Mardi Gras and you're planning to flash your boobies, then it's best to save that for later in the evening.  Also, it's a busy weekend for many with the 4th of July holiday.  We thought this would have the least amount of conflict with other functions that typically occur on this weekend (fireworks, 4th of July parties, etc).

Q:  Is there food?  Alcohol?
A:  There will be donuts, fruit, juice and coffee.  There will only be alcohol if you bring it.  Otherwise, no.

Q:  What's on the agenda?
A:  We'll start by decorating bikes for the parade.  The parade will be followed by present opening.  Donuts and coffee will be available throughout the morning.  The jumpy will be set up too.  It will be over around 12:30.

Q:  What if it rains?
A:  Come over just to see Mandy throw a huge temper tantrum.  There is no "plan B."  There is a chance of rain on Saturday.  If it does rain, prepare to be packed in the house like sardines.

Q:  What should I bring?
A:  Kids should definitely bring a riding toy.  If you're an adult, you should bring a chair or blanket to sit on.  If you'd like to join the parade, bring your bike, walker, cane, scooter or wagon.  Adam and I will be riding our bikes with the kids.  This might be your only chance to be in a parade so don't miss out.  If someone could come dressed as the beauty pageant winner, that'd be great!

Q:  Should I take a sedative before coming?
A:  Yes.  Possibly two.
