On Sunday, our Blessing turns nine.

Today, we celebrated.

The theme was “flamingos,” the site was casa de Jenkins, and the guests were fifteen or so of Reese’s closest friends.

Not sure exactly what Rhonda and I did to deserve such a blessing.

We celebrated it last weekend, but today Reese turned eight.

Today the Jenkins fam ventured north to Lynnwood.  Our destination was the Lynnwood Recreational Center and the occasion was Reese’s seventh birthday party.

Gotta say — Rhonda nailed this one.

About eighteen of Reese’s friends joined us for the cake/shell ball/swimming party.  Rhonda’s highlight was, no doubt, the shell balls, which should make for a nice keepsake for the kids.  For me it was the swimming and water slides.

I won’t say I can’t wait for Reese’s eighth birthday birthday.   We’ll get back to the LRC before that.

Our little girl just turned six.  Rhonda threw the party at Paint the Town (thank God).

As if the Saturday celebration wasn’t enough, last night the family Jenkins officially celebrated Reese’s fifth birthday.  As usual, she did quite well in the presents department.   Unfortunately she didn’t get the one thing her mom and dad most wish for — a brother that behaves.

A few pics:

The birthday girl!

 

The gratuitous pics …

with the parental units.

 

 

The cute pic notwithstanding, Finn was less than an angel on this night …

 

as this picture of him blowing out Reese’s candles suggests.

 

A perfectly pleasant setting.

Credit to Ronnie 100%.

Yesterday the family Jenkins and twelve of Reese’s closest friends celebrated her fifth birthday.  The theme was “ballerina”: all the girls dressed up in pink tutus and Rhonda hired a ballet teacher to come in and teach them a few basics.

Thanks as always to Ronnie, good times were had by all.   Unfortunately I did not do a particularly good job as cameraman: lots of shots of the girls, but of the adults not so many:

A well-instructed party.

Even Ollie got in to the swing of things.

Everyone ate quite well.

Making a wish.

Cutting the very, very tasty cake.

The girls really got into playing golf in the back yard …

and running in the front yard — for no apparent reason.

A little post-party r&r before another big event later that day.

(Uncle) Jeff Benezra missed out on Reese’s birthday party Sunday night, so tonight he made up for it by taking Reese and I out for a night out at Bellevue Square. We started at Build-A-Bear, where Reese built not a bear but a kitty, and a princess kitty at that:

Reese dubbed her new friend “Ariel” — why I don’t know.

We finished the night — surprise! — with dinner, this one at The Cheesecake Factory, where Reese celebrated with yet another mountain of sweets:

Aside from feeling that we looked very much like “two dads” — not that there’s anything wrong with that — good times were had by all.
