05:43 pm: Poke Success

The Great Pokemon Journey Birthday Party, which I have been planning since last September when Orville turned nine, was a great success. Here are a few pictures.

Like all Pokemon Journeys taken by ten year olds, this one started with each child choosing his or her starting Pokemon. Each tissue paper ball contained a plushy Pokemon.






There were games (Pikachu drawn courtesy of John)

And Juss doing the same:




Plus the Great Pokeball Ice Cream Cake:

Thanks...and yes, they're all bigger!

We went out for dinner afterward, and three other people had birthday's, too. Orville met two of them.

Cool! I'll have to post pictures of the Pirate Princess Party (like a pirate party, only with more pink glitter)

Oh, do!

John LOVES the idea of Pirate Princesses..."Ponies with eye-patches" was his comment.

So NEAT!

Do you know who James Lileks is? I instantly thought of his daughter and her similar love of pokemon....

Just a little cake left. It was an ice cream cake. ;-)

There were about 14 all together, and I probably can't recall them all off hand, but...

Orville, the birthday boy, got Riolu, which is his favorite. Juss got Aipom. Ro got Wobbuffet. Others included: Starly, Mantyke, Sneasel, Bonsly, Beazil (sp?), Manaphy, Mime Jr., Bedew, Zubat, and one whose name I cannot recall (Crogunk? something like that.) I think I've forgotten one.
