Holiday/5 Year Anniversary Party

This year we combined our Holiday Party with the gyms 5 year anniversary party!  Our theme was “ugly sweaters” and we had an “ugly” “uglier” and “ugliest” winner.  Ardy the clown made balloon animals for the kids and we had a wonderful cake to celebrate our anniversary.
