Birthday Party

Even though I'm totally behind on some of my posts, I still want to add them to this blog. I want to remember them (as clearly as possible when writing them a month or two late). So, even though we celebrated Lucy and Clara's birthday party over a month ago, I'm still going to add my post.

The party was on August 30th, the saturday of labor day weekend. The weather was gorgeous although a bit windy. We served BBQ food with pulled pork, beef brisket, macaroni salad, fruit salad, rolls, and salt potatoes. We had friends cater the food. They gave us such a great deal we couldn't say no. We had the cakes done by the local grocery store and we had lemonade, iced tea, beer and lime-a-ritas to drink Apart from the bees stinging two friends (one on his tongue), it was a great day! Clara got upset when we sang them happy birthday and didn't get to enjoy her birthday cake until later that night. Lucy got stuck in her new swing because of her cast, but luckily I missed that one. All in all, we had about 40 adults and 18 kids. It was so fun celebrating Lucy and Clara's first year.

A little out of focus, but I love her face.

Cake time!
Poor Clara wasn't into it.

So serious about her bow. 

Birthday banner I made hanging outside. 

Balloon wreath. 

Looking so fancy in her new tutu. 
She loves getting dressed up. 

Clara's headband was looking a little rough, lol.

Clara enjoyed her cake later that night.  

Beautiful day. 

Lots of babies!

Monthly photos hanging up. 

Guess I only got a picture of the fruit salad. The other food was amazing too!


  1. Looks like they had a fantastic birthday party and the tutus are TOO cute. Look at those baby blues just glowing through.

  2. Wow, that's a serious number of people! I'm impressed. No way would I want to entertain for that many. :) Looks like a great party though!

  3. I LOVE all the photos! They are such gorgeous girls. Their eyes are killer! Looks like it was a very nice day for a birthday party. Funny that Clara didn't like the birthday song! For some reason, I had thought Lucy had gotten her cast off just before the party. Looks like she had fun anyway!
