Instead, we headed over to Arlon, Belgium, to a local kids' play area to celebrate Kate's 5th birthday with 14 of her little friends. A good time was had by all, I think. The kids played, ate pizza and cake, parents chatted and drank coffee -- what's not to love?
Here are a few pictures from the day:

There was one person who didn't really enjoy the party -- Will -- and not just because he was surrounded by "annoying" 4- and 5-year-olds. A couple of days ago he took a nasty spill off some play equipment and ended up with a badly bruised, but thankfully not broken, arm which he has to keep in a sling for a week. So what fun is a play place when you can't play? Poor Will!
