Lily's Birthday Party
My daughter's birthday was yesterday at a local zoo. The spot we rented for the party was much further away than we had thought and my husband was none too pleased about having to lug all of the birthday goods to our spot. We luckily had a little portable potty for the kids if they needed to go because the bathroom was also pretty far for a small child to get to in time. There was luckily some shade that we could pull the tables into and a nice breeze so the heat wasn't so bad. The party it self went pretty well. Lily had fun and that's really all that matters.
It was a very busy weekend! Besides the party my family was visiting from out of state on Saturday and my friend and I made Lily's birthday cake, which was quite an experience in itself. The very yummy moist chocolate cake that I made really wasn't suitable for a sheet cake and my lack of experience with such a large size cake. When I flipped it out it totally broke apart but my friend was able to "glue" back together with her magical frosting skills! No one had any idea by the look of the cake that it had ever broken. My friend was such a life saver!
After we got home from the party, opened all of the presents, finally got Lily to bed, we were all completely exhausted. Now today, back to the norm of trying to keep up with everything. Joshua is just waking up from his nap, Lily is hanging out with me on the couch, and the pendants I just made are drying on the counter top. Now to try to get to the market and post office some how. Argh.
