Buddy, we have been some birthday party attending fools lately! And this past weekend, at Isabella's, was no exception!
I guess you can see I hand painted our wrapping paper. I couldn't find the ribbon to make it all cute, and besides, I actually think this was quicker!
Turned out cute, huh?!
Gabs got her bathing suit and cover up on. And made me do her hair up in "two braids". (ALWAYS!)
We showed up at the party down the street to find Cannon chillin in the baby pool.
They had the MONSTER sized slide on hand. Check out Miss Bikini there on the stairs. Sorry, Dawn, my baby DOES wear a two piece. And hates the one piece suits!
My friend, Lisa, in the blond ponytails, took my sweet Gabs up. It was a bit much for her and only took ONE try!
Theeeere she is!
Thanks, Lisa, for helping my girl. I was NOT in a swimsuit in front of all those people! Nope!
The jumper was much more her speed!
Check out all this action!
Isabella is in our dancing class, and was at our Miss America party! She will also be in kindergarten at the same school as Ellie. She was in our Kindergarten round up pictures.
She pretty much racked up on the presents.
Her party theme was Under the Sea and the entire garage was transformed to look like it was under water.
The moms hung out in there because, in Louisiana, we are ALREADY in the H.O.T season!!
Sarah, Isabella's mom, had many goldfish floating, and I THOUGHT I might want one for Gabs. She said two had already died. After Cheerio, I can't break her heart again. Anyone have any good info on a fish as a pet? Do share.
Here's Cannon, now doing tricks in the baby pool.
And here are the hot shots. Ellie in pink, Alayna in stripes in front, and Josie in orange are all in the same dance class. The recital is in about 3 weeks!!
Here's a pic of all the little hotsies.
Please not front and center in the turquoise... that's Madi. And Ellie is right behind her. They do not miss an opportunity to pose it up!
Finally I got Isabella in on the action.
Five years old! Ours is in two months, and don't you even think the queen of sheeba doesn't tell EVERYONE she meets! "I'm four, but I'll be five in two months."
Looks like Gabbi shewed Cannon out of his spot.
And now it was Ellie's turn for tricks in the jumper.
Camden totally ignored the whole, "slide, then go get at the end of the line" rule. He slid just about every other time! ha.
Several of the mamas picnicked under a shade tree.
And this is just about the time things got WILD>
Ellie started more tricks and Sarah started serving cake. It was total chaos!
Just kidding. It was great!
I loved the idea of the prescooped ice cream in the cupcake holders. Just pick one up, put it on your plate, and be on your way. A great time saver!
Sarah had every little detail covered. Such a cute little party!
And the girly girls had a ball.
Check out this motley crew.
FACE PLANT!! Ha.
And that wasnt' the only one!
Madi and Gabs were very interested in their takeaway goodie bags.
Thanks, ladies. Tonya (far left) and Sarah (turquoise) for the fun party. Hope to see you at our tie dye party in July! (and hey, Toni... black and white... former art retreat student!! sorta)
