As is my norm,
we did not get invitations out.
I just talked to his friends' moms at school.
And made a couple phone calls.
Ezra wanted a monkey party.
That doesn't at all lend itself to craziness.
Jobe was included.
Because Ezra's friends all love him.
And there would have been many tears if he wasn't.
We played Monkey in the Middle.
Barrel of Monkeys.
Did a little monkey word game.
Made a monkey stick puppet.
And, well, acted like monkeys.
A relief for this mommy.
So for dessert.
I slit a banana (with the peel on).
Stuffed it with marshmallows and chocolate chips.
Wrapped it in foil.
And heated it in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Then added a little ice cream on the side.
It was De.Lish.
And so easy.
Then we headed over to the monkey bars at school.
Ezra's best friend (and his family)
made the hour drive here.
It was a noisy party.
But, man, boys are fun.
