Children of the 80s

The Irishman was invited to a birthday party for one of his co-workers. Ruth is amazingly sweet and has always been good to us. This party has been in the works for months. We tried unsuccessfully to get a sitter, and it was already Caitlin's bedtime so we decided to stop by quickly to drop off a gift. (She said the invite was for the family and not just us...but we were the only ones with a baby there)

The theme was the 80s. We knew people were going to go all out for it. I was at a loss. Then I remembered something I got from my Grandma Jo. One thing led to another, and we had our costumes.

Sort of...

It was Caitlin's bedtime so we wore our 80's PJs. We were young actually WORE Sesame Street and Superman PJs in the 80s. Our theme was lost on some people. That's okay though...WE I thought it was clever.

Caitlin danced to the music,

and tried to put the bow back into her hair.

A sleepy Caitlin sat with Daddy...aka Superman!

And them it was time to head home for bed!

I am disappointed that we didn't get a picture with Ruth or any other party guests. There were some pretty impressive 80's costumes. (And none better than the Queen's of course!)  Happy birthday Ruth!
