This week is going to be all about the girls’ joint birthday party we had on Saturday. We decided to be a bit different and have it back home in Mississippi so that lots of our family and friends could come and celebrate with us. It was an absolutely wonderful time and there is seriously nothing I could have done that would have made it any more perfect.
It was so wonderful to be able to celebrate our girls with the people that love them the most.
And ponies. Because there is nothing smarter than giving a horse obsessed three year old a party with pony rides 🙂
She wasn’t so sure about it at first
But it didn’t take long for her to get excited!
Her horse’s name was Strawberry
And since we’ve been back, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard about Strawberry
At first, she was terrified to let go of Josh’s hand
But by her third ride, she was handling it like a pro
Eliza Bean was too small to ride the horses
So she just got in some good snuggle time with Aunt Angie instead
Isabella had a good time riding though
So did Morgan
Lauren was patient waiting her turn
And so was Ada Marie
Even the birthday girl had to wait her turn
And Eliza Jane got in more snuggles with Laura Payton
I adore this picture
This one is pretty special too 🙂
After pony rides, we moved on to the carousel
And this time, Eliza got to ride as well!
Skeptical baby is skeptical of your carousel fun
There’s a bit more of a smile
When the tongue comes out, you know she’s having fun
Then it was time for food!
All Marion really needs to be happy is some ham. No lie. She can eat her weight in ham.
Eliza just wanted cupcakes
Birthday cupcake time!
This picture sums up why we went through all this. The look on her face while everyone was singing to her was absolutely priceless and worth it all.
I love this girl
Skeptical baby is skeptical of your cupcake
Skeptical baby is not skeptical of how yummy cupcakes are though!
Posing for pictures interfered with her cupcake eating agenda
Back to business
And um, yeah, someone else ate a cupcake too
I think the cupcake ate her back a little bit
There was icing her nose
Skeptical baby is fascinated by
The banjo player!
She had fun on the dance floor
Girl has moves
And the rare photo of just the two of us!
More party pictures and details to come over the week
Again, a huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us, your presence was truly the best gift and it was so wonderful to celebrate our girls with you all!
