I was worried when a few days before the party, the temperature went down and the pool was cold, and the dogs got sprayed by a skunk, and the trampoline mat ripped and the pony went lame and the rain filled the yard with huge muddy puddles and the firepit was under 6 inches of water...But.... kids will swim even in cold water and we put the dogs in the goat pen and the trampoline was fixed in time and the pony was feeling better and we used pallets to make walkways and reassembled the firepit on the driveway. There was lots of food and nobody cried - it was a success! I think we had about 50ish people - at one point, there were at least 20 in the pool. We'd definitely be open to having a get together here again.
