Baby sister's birthday

What makes for a successful birthday party for a four year old? Throw together a mixture of a large space decorated for a unicorn party, then add in around 15-20 little kids (and their parents), lots of noise and excitement, decorations, an inflated swimming pool filled with lots of balloons, helium-filled balloons floating everywhere, finger foods, cake, crafts, lots and lots of presents, and a pair of sleep-deprived parents and other assorted relatives. And, what do you get? Two hours of unadulterated F.U.N.

Balloons in a pool

A play castle

Crafts

A rainbow cake

Lots of presents

A grammy having fun with the kids

Little brother in awe of it all

Getting ready to open presents

Happy fourth birthday, little sister.

Everyone enjoyed themselves at the party, so thank you, daughter and son-in-law, for inviting us. A good time was had by all.

It's so beautiful! Love the rainbow cake! Who made it? The only thing that made me /cringe/ was the balloons in the pool. I have a compulsive twitch when it comes to popping balloons - a little kid, rubbing one or SITTING on one sends me running. I missed you sweetie!
