Birthday Party Fun




It was a Scorcher for Chloe's Birthday Party, that's for sure, but we still had a great time !

The kids spent their time going in the Jumpy then to the Pool and back round again, and again. The Adults spent their time watching the kids, sitting, drinking and having good conversation. Of course there were ice cold Mojito's, Appetizers, Pizza and the Positive Room (for those of you that were not here, that's the one room in the house that we thankfully have air conditioned!) Oh, and I can't forget the yummy Ice Cream Cake from Coldstone.

From my experience one of the funniest times at a Kids Birthday Party, (other than the senseless beating of a pinata) is when you bring out the cake. The kids light up like lights, and they stare and stare at the cake with big eyes, plotting which piece has to be theirs. They certainly do not hold back in letting the cake cutter know exactly what they want. " I want that piece right there with the oreo and the pink flower on it !" Then their is the humorous Adult who voices behind you, the exact piece they have to have, too funny, because you know... kids say the darnedest things, and we adults would be banned from any social situation if we were to act like they do, so it is quite hilarious to hear that from an adult, while struggling to cut the cake and serve it to the salivating children....I can really appreciate the humor of it all !

Some photo highlights below..

It was a great great party! I had such a nice time..that Mojito high in the heat with all of the kids happy, happy, happy was a great way to spend a day. Love the pictures. My favorites are the ones of you and Chloe and the cake...such a lovely soft glow.

Yup..and that i-Phone is pretty amazing..now I know what all the fuss is about.

I'm going to steal the Isabel ones if you don't mind! and maybe a couple others?

Sorry we missed it! As Caroline may have told you my plan was to shower and 1/2 get ready for our wedding, come to your party and then finishing getting ready after. Obviously one does not shower before going to a 100 degree birthday party!

We will not miss #7. Beautiful photos. Love the baby ones too. She has always had the same sweet face she still has now.

Enjoy the 1st day of school tomorrow!
