My husband and I love being parents! There are very few things more rewarding and wonderful than being a parent. Although being a parent is amazing, it is also a lot of responsibility, and it isn’t something to take lightly. We have so much fun with our kids, and we try to make sure that our children know that we love them and that they have parents who want to invest in them, and who are interested in their lives. Something that Vince and I have always done for our kids is throw big birthday parties for them. It doesn’t matter how old they are turning, we make a big deal on their birthdays. We go all out. Last year for our son’s birthday, we had a lot of fun even if nothing went as planned. The party was meant to be an inside party of video games and all sorts of fun, but the air conditioner in our house stopped working about two hours before everyone arrived for the party. My husband tried to figure out what was wrong with the air conditioner, but it was no use, he couldn’t fix it. We called an HVAC technician, but they couldn’t come until the following day, so we were stuck with twenty people in a very hot house. At first, I kind of panicked, but I decided playing inside just wasn’t going to work because it was simply too hot. We ended up playing outside in the pool, and many of the kids rode our ATVs and horses. In the end, it turned out to be a really fun party even though we didn’t have air conditioning in our house, and it was super hot outside.
