Lydia was Glowing on her Birthday!

Lydia turned 4-years-old Saturday and so we threw a “Glow-in-the-dark” party for her. We had the girls make beaded necklaces, with glow-in-the-dark beads, complete with their names. Then we painted their nails with glow-in-the-dark nail polish, painted their faces with glow-in-the-dark paint, gave them tattoos that glow-in-the-dark and when they were all finished I handed them each glow necklaces and glow bracelets. Then we went to our basement for some glow-in- the-dark fun, complete with a black-light which made their clothes glow as well. The girls had so much fun!
Here are all the girls that came to the party.
Here they are glowing…

Jack got creative with the necklace and bracelet and made a shoe out of them.

And here is one more video of the fun they had!

That evening after John had gotten some sleep from being on-call the night before, we went to Red Robbin to get Lydia's birthday burger. Just after we placed our order, the lights went out. Apparently a transformer at a nearby Lowe's caught fire and caused a power outage to local businesses. We joked that it was continueing Lydia's glow-in-the-dark theme. They were still able to serve the kids macaroni and cheese and bring us some salads but because of the power outage the kitchen was shut down, so no burgers for us - oh well :(. I have to say though, that the staff there was fabulous and helped to make it fun for all of us despite the circumstances, can't wait to go back!
