April 16, 2016 Thurston's Birthday Party

A couple months ago Thurston went to his friend Gavin's birthday party at a rec center that had a climbing wall.  Ever since then he keeps asking if he can go again, so we decided to have his birthday party at The Source -- a rock climbing place in Vancouver.  We had never been there before, but heard that it was a favorite place for some friends who have kids that rock climb, so we booked it.
It was a hit.  The kids had so much fun, and the girls helping with the party made it super easy and were great with the kids.  Thurston seems to be a natural at climbing, several of the coaches there made comments about how well he was doing and mentioned that he should join their junior rock climbing team...  I think he was doing pretty well, but still am not sure if they were just being extra nice in the name of recruiting more kids.

The party started upstairs on a smaller wall and after the kids mastered that they got to go down and climb the big wall.

They stopped in the middle for a snack and presents -- We made cupcakes with rock candy on them.  We were all too interested in the climbing to remember to take pictures of the treats.
