Birthday Party Fun!

Each and every time we host a birthday party at the REC, I leave with a huge smile. Watching the young party goers hop around from the ball pit in the Indoor Playground to the Art Room where a themed craft awaits and then turn the corner with wonder into the Play & Pretend room never seems to get old!

We had a great group in today celebrating a 4th Birthday.  As always, the popcorn was popped fresh and the homemade custom cupcake tier set the scene for a fun afternoon. Here are some pictures from today’s bash! Enjoy!
