The party is over and we are now savoring all of the memories that were made.
SaraGrace caught several fish that had hooks that were hard to remove. She would start praying, "God please help me to get the hook out. Please don't let the fishy die." I think she is the only kid I know who prays and feels sad over the fish she catches.

It was a wonderful evening and we are so thankful that my dad was feeling well enough to be there. He is doing so much better than he was in January due to a new medication.
Meanwhile....on Friday, as we were decorating for the party, my cell phone rang. It was Make A Wish with news that Katie's wish was going to be granted! She wished to meet Bethany Hamilton (from the movie, Soul Surfer). She is the young woman whose arm was bitten off by a shark as she surfed near her home in Kauai. She overcame it to become a professional surfer and is a Christian with a beautiful testimony about how God helped her through it all. So....much to our intense excitement, we are flying to Kauai in two days to meet her and to get some surfing lessons!!!!!
I arrived home last night from Ohio, will do a boatload of laundry and in two days we will boarding a plane at 6AM to Kauai. Pinching myself...and needing to get off the computer so I can go get ready!!
