Caroline was equally as excited!
After church, we set all the goodies out...this year, we delved into the art of homemade cakes and cupcakes, even down to the icing. We worked almost all day on Saturday, made good memories and some really good cake, but now I have a lot more respect for those in the bakery business. Decorating cakes is much harder than it seems! We made the girls a giant cupcake each, then mini cupcakes for all the guests.
We hoped the weather would cooperate for our party, and even though it rained about 30 minutes before the party, it cleared up just in time and we had a great time outside!
Enjoying some time with the girls at their party!
The girls received a bounce house as their big gift this year; we figured we'd get lots of years of use out of it, so we decided to buy one of our own. The kids loved it and it was a big hit!
Grammy even got in for some fun!
Getting ready to cut the cake!
After cutting the cake, Claire sat in her chair for probably 20 minutes, slowly taking bites and savoring each piece.
Caroline bouncing with her best friend, Sophia! They are only 5 months apart, and the greatest thing is her mom and I are best friends from high school!
Even little Emma bounced around with the big kids!
The girls having a turn of their own!
Winding down the party and enjoying time with Sophia!
