Birthday Party!
You may remember that I attended my niece and nephew’s birthday party a couple of weekends ago. I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had much time to process the photos until earlier this week. We had such a wonderful time and these pictures are just a taste of it!
Birthday Collage 1
Alyssa (7) and Carter (2) are obviously five years apart, but they were also born about two weeks apart. I’m not sure that they’ll always have joint parties but it really worked this year – besides, when have you known a two year old to notice the difference.
Blow Up Collage
There were two bounce houses – one for the little ones and one for the bigger kids (although I’m not sure anyone really regulated who went into either one). But really, I don’t care how old you are…doesn’t everyone like to jump?! Actually, I didn’t get into either one. I was exhausted just looking at them.
Carter Collage
Carter was much more interested in running around the yard. I love the picture above on the left – I can just imagine him playing sports as he gets older. I wonder if he’ll still tuck his head as he runs.
Painting and Slushy Collage
This carnival-themed birthday party had it all…from bounce houses to face painting and snow cones. Even the grandmothers got involved!
Silly Moments Collage
Of course, we did have our silly moments. If my husband wasn’t flirting with a 7 year old, he was juggling his snow cone. Meanwhile, Carter tried to hold his balance in the bounce house and Alyssa enjoyed popcorn. Yum!
Alyssa Collage
I’m kinda giggling at Alyssa in these pictures. She is such a happy kid and I am so jealous of those curls. This may be off topic, but she’s starting to express an interest in photo editing (she loves watching me work). I mentioned to her that I would bring my Rebel with me (my first DSLR) next time I visited so I could teach her how to take her own pictures. Maybe I’ll also teach her model eyes.
Cute Babies Collage
All-in-all, it was the perfect day for a birthday party. I mean, what more do you want…bounce houses, snow cones, hot dogs, face painting and cute kids. With all that said, Happy Birthday Carter and Alyssa! I love you. Happy Wednesday!
