Party Time

Had E's 3rd birthday party yesterday in our backyard aka HELL.

Holy cow is it ever hot here. Wow. I sweated like a stinking pig all day long. Had to change shirts 3 times/2 showers just to make myself presentable. (And I am not even sure I was.....I can't believe how much more I sweat while pregnant. Gross.)

Fun times though. So nice to see friends and their kids. Think we had about 12 kids all under 5, a jump house, bubbles, sand box, sand table, pinata, cake....and no big injuries. Phew. E had a great time. Played hard, enjoyed her friends, presents and cake. 3rd birthday parties are no joke. Lots of work! We were lucky enough to have a lot of family helping us out.

Thanks to everyone for coming. Esp. thanks to our families for their HUGE help yesterday. Mike's brother and mom took E to the pool and helped out a ton and my mom, dad, sis and bro-in-law all came through big time getting everything set up and food bought and ready. Needless to say, everyone is a little sleepy today.

So, the 3rd birthday celebrations have finally come to a close. Took long enough. :)

Some pics.

Mike had to eventually rip this thing....wiffle ball bat and 3 year old arms were not getting the job done.

Care bears cake. Publix makes a rocking cake. Yum.

Looks like Ella had a great birthday! said...

I recently had my sons 4th birthday party two weeks ago. Toddler party planning is no joke but what great fun and heart warming smiles to enjoy. How much do those jumping castles rock? I actually just bought one from Toysrus just to have for parties and play dates.

I saw this post about birthday parties and wanted to drop a note about my recently launched website because I thought it might be of interest to you. I thought why not let everyone know about… It is a kids birthday wishlist community dedicated to birthdays and holidays.

That is one BIG cake.

Now, I swear to you, it was HOTTER here in NC. Sounds strange, but it's true. I looked at a weather map and yes, central North Carolina was hotter than Hotlanta. And Florida. I couldn't believe it either.
