and I found this park,
I thought it would be the perfect place
for a birthday party.
I remember saying, "It's too bad
that we can't count on the weather in
April because I'd love to have
Bren's birthday party here next year."
and I'm so glad we took the chance
and booked this room for Bren's party.
We gambled with the weather,
and it turned out to be in our favor.
We couldn't have asked for a better day!
and a few friends outside of school.
18 Kindergarteners plus parents and
a few siblings came out to help us celebrate!
Everyone had such a great time!
The kids enjoyed playing on the playground
equipment the most.
It was hard to drag them away for
my relay races.
came over for a few relays.
They balanced plastic jungle animals on
spoons and raced each other.
they just ran from playground to party room.
We had Madagascar 2 playing in the party room
as well as a station set up to make
little bracelets with wild animal beads.
Bren was the most excited about this!
we went inside for pizza, cake, ice cream and
where she's gotten to invite all of her friends.
Every year since she was three years old,
we have moved in April.
Because of that, she associates birthdays with moving.
When some of her friends had birthdays earlier this year,
she was very concerned that they were moving.
She also asked me several times if
we were moving since it was her birthday.
Bren will get to have two more birthdays
here in Washington before we move again.
I'm so glad she was able to experience her own
full blown birthday party!
on her actual birthday day.
I got a few cute shots from that,
so I thought I'd share them too.
watched her grow along with us over the life of my blog.
Your sweet comments about her over the
past two years have brought us alot of joy.
I have the best blog readers ever!!
