I really couldn't have asked for it to go any better. The rain that they said was going to come, never did. The company was wonderful. The kids had a blast. The food was great! By 7pm, I was totally.exhausted. No joke. I just vegged on the couch until I went to bed.
The party had just started & the kids came down to discover they had these cool balloons tied to their chairs. It provided a good 15 minutes of straight giggles!
Right after this picture of Sofi, I asked her for her paci & she gave it to me w/o a problem. I showed her where I put it up & she happily forgot about it for the rest of the day (& no, this is not for the #@*% anonymous' benefit, just gotta share that they will be ready when they are ready).
Did I mention how much Gabi loved the balloons? The problem, for most of the day she called it a "baboon" & finally towards the end, she figured out how to say it right. So precious!
Kay-Kay (the bestest 14, almost 15 yr old in the world), my mom (Meme) & She-She (one of the greatest friends of all times) w/ Sofi.
Ian & Daddy were having fun jumping up to get the balloons.
The canopy was a popular hangout.
Miss Mia (from a set of triplets that came).
Mr. Andrew (the brother in the other set of triplets, handsome devil)!
Miss Ava (aka, Social Butterfly & the other sister in the set of triplets)
Apparently Ian & Jude were having a pretty serious conversation.
This was the cutest thing EVER. Ava & Jude were talking. Ava was very excited & waving her hands all over the place while talking. I asked her mommy, Susan, if this was normal & she said that Ava likes to talk w/ her hands. So cute!
Ava wanted in the car w/ Gabi.
All the adults feeding the kids & enjoying the back deck.
We came inside to cool off & the kids were all about the balloons.
Ian had so much fun hitting the balloon around!
Our attempt at a family picture. HA!
That's all folks, the end!
