Addie's Birthday Party

Addie's 2nd birthday party was on Saturday at The Lifestyle Center. It was the perfect location considering it was 102 degrees outside. Everyone had lots of fun doing all sorts of activities: racing across the gym, playing basketball, bouncing and sliding in the bouncehouse, dancing, eating cake and opening some GREAT gifts. We are so blessed and very thankful that Addie has such wonderful little friends.

The theme was The Backyardigan's, Addie's current favorite.

Have you ever tried to get 8 kids to smile and look in the same direction?

Coloring is a fun pastime.

The bounce house was a big hit!

Time to blow out the candles...

We are still working on "blowing out the lights," luckily "J" was on hand to help us out.

The staff had a good idea for opening presents. When your gift was the one being opened you could come up and help. It actually worked really well.

The balloons were a big hit! That evening Addie ate more than I have ever seen her eat and slept for about 13 hours. She had a great time and we have great pictures and video to look at in the years to come.

Mimi made an awesome cake and as always Addie loved the candle!
