Birthday party recap

Confession without regret: I didn't take a lot of photos at Wavey's party this past weekend.  Sometimes I struggle with trying too hard to capture everything with my camera and then finding myself not enjoying the actual moment. 

This weekend, I enjoyed the party with friends and family without my camera (for the most part) but did capture a few funny moments, like how the kids were way more interested in the galvanized metal tub that kept water, juice boxes and themselves cool in the summer heat:

I'm really hoping these two end up marrying each other, but it's doubtful based on the look on Griff's face:

Wavey found it a super-treat to be offered cheesy chips, to which she went all-out until I caught her licking the inside of the bowl:

I did manage to assemble some favor bags to go with the pink/brown theme:

After several hours of hopping around in a bounce house, paired with sweltering temps, the kids got kind of "mehh" with each other after a bit:

In fact, Wavey confessed to us in the evening that she hit Abby while in the bounce house, but was on the fence if it was a punishable offense since Abby didn't rat her out or cry (apparently, there are levels of measurable hand-to-hand combat among five-year-olds).  Regardless, we were swift in our dismay for such behavior, and Wavey was prompted to write an apology:

Despite that minor mishap, it was a great day and now we're swimming in new toys.  Let the summer fun begin.

Abby still has not mentioned any foul play in the bounce house. I guess what happens in the bounce house STAYS in the bounce house!

These cute kids are looking very adorable. I truly had an awesome time watching these pictures. We had thrown the unicorn inspired party for our girl. She wanted this theme for a long time so I planned a surprise for her. Hosted this bash at the local event venue in LA which all the kiddos enjoyed.
