We did the family party (theme day) later that week! This time, the theme was....WAR! Pretty fun! We played the Great Escape soundtrack, as we enjoyed the decor, meals, gifts....
Sam also set up a super fun obstacle course inspired by combat in the Philippines- complete with real bamboo! (found in the park behind us- seeded from some neighbour's plants!)

The obstacle course! Everyone tried it, and we were timed. I can't even remember who won, but it was fun! Points were detracted if one made unusual mistakes...
|''Sam! you expect ME to FIT under that?'' wails Marjo. To her delight, she did. :)|
|the forest was constructed of bamboo and maple leaf branches and was watered by an gentle sprinkler|

Those are all the pictures I have for now...we took some videos as well...
|the birthday boy...one of those pictures which gives one a glimpse of what one's youngest brother will be as a man! Wow...can't believe how they grow!|
