Max's 7½-year birthday party
First thing in the morning, Max got a few presents from Eileen and Bengt.
Namely a lava
lamp, and new snorkel and mask, and new swim goggles.
In the afternoon we had a party here. More presents!
Max is well mannered enough to read the cards, as well.

or if he would have preferred knowing in advance. He said he liked the surprise.
Roffe's tricks were pretty good! Kids are a tough audience, though.
They just blurt it out if they are skeptical about something.
One trick involved stamping on cups, one of which had a
spike hidden under it. "Kids, don't try this at home!"
The kids enjoyed "candy rain". (Much nicer than the rain we had outside
