You Are Invited To A Science Hootenanny

Well, it's that time of year again. Get your party shoes on because, in just a couple of weeks Ms. Harper A. Booker will be FIVE years old! Holy bananas, where has the time gone?!?!?! I can't even start with the my baby is growing up because I'll just begin weeping and never stop.

Harper is set on a Science Hootenanny birthday party this year. There will be cake. There will be science. There will be a hootenanny or, as Harper says, "... a big dance party where people come from far and near." And this year is TWICE as festive because our dear friend Mimi, who has almost an identical birthday, will be celebrating with us. And speaking of people coming from near and far...

This year we've bucked tradition and will be holding the party at our farm in Dover, so as to accommodate all the expected sciencing and hootenannying. The specifics follow:

WHAT: Harper and Mimi's
Science Hootenanny Birthday Extravaganza

DATE: Sunday, October 25, 2015

TIME: 1:00 PM

WHERE: The Event Room at the
Florida Strawberry Growers Association

ADDRESS: 13138 Lewis Gallagher Road
Dover, FL 33527

BRING: A small potluck item. Sunscreen. A kite if you want to fly a kite. 

DO NOT BRING: A birthday gift. Seriously. Don't bring one. No one will. You won't be the only person not bringing a gift. I promise. If you have been so pressured into feeling like you MUST bring something or you are teaching your kids about giving then a handmade card would be lovely and enthusiastically appreciated. But nothing else. Got it? Thank you anyway.

OTHER: We typically have a loosey-goosey attitude regarding attendance to these kinds of things but, since this time we want to have actual planned activities for the kids, we'll need to do some actual planning in advance. As such, if you will have kids in attendance, please RSVP with a head count no later than Sunday, October 18th.
