Unfortunately the individual/team in charge of planning the event never bothered to check the hours of the rec center, which meant that after promising the kids a swim if they behaved during the dinner, we had to go back on our promise and deal with the inevitable meltdowns that came soon afterwards. Kind of a bummer.
We did, however, enjoy the center pieces on the table.
And Will loved the bayonette-twirling presentation.
Hallie, not so much.
I guess guns with swords on the end just aren't her thing.
