A Recap of Jessie’s 15th Birthday!

We have a large family. And I don’t just mean us. Yes, two parents and four children is not exactly small, but when you count in grandparents, aunts, uncles, and nephews, it gets even bigger. The best bonus of a big family? Instant party! Jessie’s 15th birthday snuck up on us over the weekend, so we were especially thankful to all our family who came and made it so special for her!

Jessie shares her birthday with my youngest nephew, who turned 3 on the same day jessie turned 15. My brother and his family made a weekend trip to Memphis so that we could all celebrate together. We decided on an afternoon at Incredible Pizza Company, thinking that the kids would have a blast with all the games. It turned out that the adults had just as much fun as the kids, if not more!

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to it. I view Incredible Pizza as a glorified version of Chuck E. Cheese’s, and let’s face it… that place is a nightmare for parents! But we had such an awesome group that I think we could have made a long DMV line fun! And that doesn’t even have bumper cars, mini golf, and bowling. We ended up having a blast, and the time flew by.

Besides, who couldn’t have fun with these adorable birthday celebratees?

Jessie always knows how to make the kids laugh!

Can’t have a birthday without cake! 15 candles on one side, and 3 on the other (you can see who managed to blow theirs out first!).

My favorite part of the day? Watching all the “big kids” do bumper cars! Thank goodness for cameras with 10,000 ISO (it was DARK in there)! Hilariously enough, the smaller kids wouldn’t do it. Ha! But they had a great time cheering. I hope it was worth the pulled stitches, Jonathan!
