Prestwich Movies 9

Jenna turned 9 on July 1st! She loves birthdays & parties, so we had to think of something fun. In the past we have mostly done backyard, play-in-the-kiddie-pool type parties, but she's getting a little big for the equipment we have. A bunch of 9 year old would demolish my kiddie pool in about 10 minutes.
We decided to try something different this year. I borrowed a movie projector from a sweet friend & we set up a movie theater in our garage.
 (My pictures are pretty bad, they were an afterthought & the lighting was very bad- 
but great for watching a movie)
 Hang your gifts here...
 Opening presents at intermission...
 You can kind of see how we set the chairs up in rows like a theater.
 The lamest cake I've ever made...
 She didn't mind!
We watched Gnomeo & Juliet.

Other things not pictured: We set up a concession stand in the back where the kids got pizza, breadsticks & lemonade at the beginning of the movie, then cake and ice cream after intermission. Aubrey & Lydia also passed out bags of popcorn after everyone at their pizza. No one left hungry!

Jenna was so gracious & sweet. She has great friends and they all had lots of fun. It was worth the chaos & frantic cleaning of the garage. I was worried that it would be a disaster. We had about 20 kids packed in there! I lost track of how many times she thanked me for the "best birthday party ever."
