The Super M@rio Br0s. Party was a success. Due to rainy, wet weather, it was much more subdued than past parties. The kids watched a movie while eating dairy-free popcorn and drinking water from their party favors: M@rio sports bottles. (I wanted to get favors they might actually use again.)
Then we ate dairy-free cake, opened gifts, and did some coloring pages and games I found online. I love you, Internets.
The long, painful, birthday pet search is finally at an end. It turns out that K. is mildly allergic to dogs, and so we didn't want to introduce yet another allergen into her environment. That being the case, I'd like you to meet:
Kevin the parakeet!
Kevin is named for the bird in UP, which is a movie you and your family should see if you haven't already. We don't know for sure if Kevin is a boy or a girl.
*MOVIE SPOILER ALERT*
But we figure we're covered, since the Kevin in the movie turns out to be female.
Time to work on more back-to-school stuff. I'll be posting some new product reviews this week in time for the start of school next week!
