VIII is Great

Yesterday one of my closest friends threw a spectacular party for her daughter's eighth birthday. It was an Ancient Greek feast so each of the kiddos dressed as a specific goddess or god while the parents - I mean Titans - sipped on Greek wine and dined on tasty kebabs and delicious spanakopita. The guest of honor was Athena and there were little versions of Zeus, Pandora, Ares, Demeter, Poseidon, Aphrodite plus many many more. They took chariot rides around the sun, roasted marshmallows and ran wild to the equivalent of what seemed like several marathons. It was a truly creative birthday party and a delightful afternoon. Luckily I had my Olympus to snap some pics of Mount Olympus. Enjoy...
