On Saturday, April 10, we celebrated Katie Anne's birthday with friends and family. Katie Anne had her heart absolutely set on a Tinker Bell party. She had a dream of a garden party and all her friends running around with fairy wings and magic wands. So, what can you do when your about-to-be-three year old is a budding party planner in the making? Of course, you do your best to make all her Tinker Bell plans come true!
We had a big party in Doc and VJ's yard with a giant slide, bouncy house, and lots of toys for her friends to play with together. It was a fairytale garden party just like she'd hoped for, with bright balloons and colorful tablecloths. The party started with everyone mixing and mingling while the kids (and lots of the adults) played on the slide or with the frisbees, bouncy balls, and hula hoops. Then, we had a yummy lunch of pizza, chips, and fruit - followed by the Tinker Bell and Fairy Friends cake that Katie Anne picked out herself. After that, the kids had a treasure hunt - I hid 100 tiny treasure chests in the yard with candy inside, and the kids each got a basket for hunting them. Finally, Katie Anne got to open all her great presents. It was such a fun day!
Between my mom, Jillian, and Erin taking great pictures, we've got more than 600 pictures of the party day! Here are just a few of my favorites... to see the rest of the best, click here to view the Facebook album.
