My stepson is an adorable little guy, and we try our best to give him a happy childhood.
He lives with his mother most of the time, so his visits to our house are always a special time full of fun activities and lots of hugs.
On his last trip to our house we decided to celebrate his birthday and wanted to give him a big bash that he would remember for the rest of his life. Because he just started school, he has a number of cute little friends that would be able to attend, and we decided to throw the coolest party we could afford. It was the middle of July so the temperatures were soaring. The most logical idea for his celebration was to have a big pool party, and we had everything set up days ahead of time. The pool was set to the perfect temperature and water conditions, we had awesome decorations all over the backyard, and we purchased a ton of awesome snacks for the kiddos. We didn’t expect a huge thunderstorm to roll in and ruin the party, though. We saw lightning and scooted all the kids inside immediately, only to be faced with a new problem. The air conditioning had been set to a super low temperature because of the outdoor heat, but now the kids were wet and freezing. We tried to turn off the AC and warm up the house, but the outdoor temperature had dropped dramatically. Rather than a pool party, we ended up with 6 shivering kids sitting amongst a gathering of space heaters.
