I'd say the party was a success. The boys and their friends throughly enjoyed themselves, and I learned some important lessons. First that decorations, activities, etc. can be a lot of fun, but they are not what makes a party great, it's friends. Especially friends who will venture out a in thunderstorm to help you celebrate. Secondly, if you put sand tables on your front porch and then hand a dozen children buckets and shovels you are asking for a big mess.
