The Family Party
Now that we're home and more family can come over to celebrate the kids' birthdays, we usually have a separate family party instead of trying to have all of our family and friends all over at once. It also gives me a chance to try out ideas for the kids' cakes before their other parties.
We got sparkler candles and Jack couldn't get his to go out.
I love the look Alice is giving him here!
Jack's birthday theme was Legos this year. I'm showing you this centerpiece because there's no picture of a similar one at his kid party--I'll tell you the story on that later.
Alice wanted a ballerina party, so I used a lot of pink and purple. I tried these colored jars a couple of times and finally got some I was happy with.
Alice was sooooo excited to get a pink dinosaur!
She has already played with the water table enough to make it worth it!
Two things Jack loves: Legos and Harry Potter!
The kids had fun playing outside some, too. I took the picture from inside, though, because I don't have as much fun in the heat as they do!
