Okay, everyone hold hands!
Let's try holding hands again!
It's funny watching the girls interact with other kids at this age. I witnessed quite a few little friends try to figure out who was who and even ask, "Which one are you?"
The party was fabulous fun, of course. I didn't take any photos because I was too busy blabbing and enjoying. There was one minor incident when we couldn't find Anna. I started to panic thinking that she could have somehow fallen somewhere. After a few minutes, we located her in a corner at the top of a big slide. She was too afraid to go down the slide so I climbed up there and slid down with her. Yeah, I'm definitely getting old. And then she wanted me to help her with the obstacle course, which wasn't what I expected at all. I stumbled out of it and said to Rich, "I hurt my knee and I may have pulled a groin muscle."
The girls had their own little birthday cakes this year. That was not without some drama. Rich and I waited until the last minute and the girls had specific ideas for these elaborate cakes and not to be mean or anything but no one was even going to see the cakes so I just couldn't spend time or $ on something that was going to have candles stuck in it and then immediately consumed. We kept the cakes out of sight until the party. The girls didn't say anything until the ride home and we told them that the bakery must have messed up.
Fake car napping
[If you are thinking of purchasing a Speedlight - I used mine for the candle blowing photos. The lights were turned off and it was fairly dark in the room.]
