Party time!

Thanks Everyone for a Great Party!
Audrey and Sofia’s party went off without a hitch last weekend despite the fact that we had to move the party indoors due to the weather.  Considering the girls birthday and the fact that we live in Seattle… I suspect this won’t be the last party that gets moved indoors due to rain.
That being said- it was a great day.  We moved the furniture around, sent a last minute update to our friends and everyone got the message (I think- you didn’t show up at the park, did you?), added beer to the menu- and viola!- everyone was happy!  We had a bunch of friends- with babies and kids of all ages.  It was so fun to see them all play together.  And fun to see friends that we don’t see nearly often enough- it is another time when I am reminded how quickly time goes by.
Oh Sugar, Sugar!
The girls’ each got a cupcake and enjoyed digging in and mostly pushing them around their trays.  I’m glad to report they didn’t seem overly enamored with the sugar or chocolate content.  I know they will get over that in another couple years and won’t delude myself into thinking that they will continue to bypass the treats for green beans and blueberries!  It is an interesting factoid that the carrot cake cupcakes were the first to vanish (followed by red velvet)- I thought it would have been the double chocolate.
So, it was a wonderful, special day that we felt so lucky to share with family and friends.  Sofia and Audrey are so fortunate to be surrounded by so many loving, caring people and so are Tony and I.  Thanks again to everyone who celebrated with us- both in person and across the country!  For those who weren’t with us, we know you were in spirit.
