The weather was perfect, so thank you all for the "good weather vibes"!
We had about 13 children and 40 or so adults attend Princess's 5Th Birthday
celebration this year, and it all went pretty well. My backyard looked like someones held a "kegger"
out there for a couple of days, but Farmer Dad took Monday through Wednesday off so he could help
clean it all up.Princess was totally spoiled with so many lovely and thoughtful gifts!
The food was ready on time, no major appliances broke the day before (first time in 5 years!) and
no one was too sick to attend! For those of you who missed it due to vacation schedules, better luck next year!
LOL We even had two of my little brothers come home from college and attend (OK, they came home for other reasons, but they did attend while home).Farmer Dad's oldest brother and his family drove 5 hours one way to attend! Yes, we really appreciated the effort! We are going to try to drive down the shore today to explore the beach since we are all in the mood from reading one of our favorite gifts this year, Flotsam by David Wiesner.
Our very good friend,Miss Diana always gives the gift of her talents of face painting for the children as well
and here is a picture of her and Princess reading it together.
The kids even made good use of the fallen tree!
We played skee ball and "decorate your own cupcake".You can judge for yourselves if they had fun....
