This is my second blog written to capture memories made with our grandchildren. The link to my first blog, "Meet Our Grandchildren," is listed below in the right hand column. Hope you have time to read some of it. Our journey to becoming grandparents has been full of adventure and much love.

Kara's12th Birthday

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)
"Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of  Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. . . ."

The image on Kara's cake is the symbol on the cover of the Hunger Games books. I had no knowledge of these books, so I questioned Papa, the avid reader, about them. I must tell you when I read the above description I was horrified that Kara would be reading these books. Papa tells me they are really good and he loved all three of them. He testified that they are acceptable reading for Miss Kara. Personally, I find it very strange for a twelve year old to read books on such a subject matter. I guess Nana has to get with the times.

Kara had a great time at her family party. Her very words were, "I love having parties like this where everyone you love and everyone who loves you are here."

Miss Kara had a sleepover the next night to celebrate with her friends. Lots and lots of friends!!!!
Hugs and kisses,
