After the kids were fueled up on pizza, it was time for The Jake Games to begin. This was Duke's part of the party. We divided the kiddos up into teams and then set them up with a series of sports challenges, including: hockey, lacrosse, soccer, basketball, football (of course), and a relay race.
The kids did great! They followed the directions and worked together pretty well on their randomly generated teams. I also have to give a shout out to the parents who helped keep the games moving along. It would have been utter chaos without them.
After the games were complete, it was time for another rousing rendition of that classic kid favorite, the Happy Birthday song!
And that's it. There is no more...at least not until next year. Will there be a 2nd annual Jake Games? I don't know. This years games were pretty fun. Maybe after a year's rest....
