Elle's 2nd Birthday party

We celebrated Elle's 2nd birthday this evening, though her actual bday is still a few days off. Sarah decorated the house and set up a variety of play stations such as soccer, bowling, puzzles, bubbles, and a slide for the kids' amusement. I think there were over 40 people here and it was crazy chaotic fun for a couple of hours! Happy, happy birthday, Elle!

Miles went to pick up the cake and there wasn't one. Apparently, the bakery had written down the wrong date. He said, "My daughter's birthday party is starting in 30 minutes!" They managed to whip this up in no time. It was VERY pink but cute.

We were happy that Susan, Aidan and Ally were able to come celebrate with us. Corey had to work and, of course, we missed Bonnie, David and Emery as well.

Our friends Kirk and Dana came, along with their precious boy Daniel.

The slide was a big hit with all the kids.

The kids had fun chasing big bubbles.

Looks like you did manage to do some shopping for yourself--cute! Thanks for the "party crash" opportunity. Safe travels back to Houston.

Aaahhh...I remember the chaos of planning and executing little kid parties. To tell you the truth, I am happy to leave it to the younger generation now! Looks like you all had a good time. Or should I say y'all.
