This jeep jerks around from side to side and forward and back. She was playing peek a boo through the windsheild.
I'm not sure you are supposed to THROW the ski ball... but she had fun doing it!
Grandma Lyn gave her this mermaid that she has ocd with and the hair has to always be perfect and she gets really mad when you mess it up.
She hasn't rode on this since last year because it has been too scary. And again, she's fixing the mermaids hair. hahaha
Chris from August Wynn did all the food, I ordered a white strawberry shortcake cake from him and Nancy is talented enough to pull this off! If you don't know Yo Gabba Gabba none of this will make sense to you... it's all in the theme!
On the menu was pulled pork, meat and cheese tray, potato salad, green bean salad, mozarella balls, shrimp and grilled and fresh veggies and of course, Laura made her fabulous pasta salad. Not too much was kid friendly, but they were so hopped up on sugar, I think it was ok to be selfish with the food.
Nancy whipped out a life size Brobee in an ADHD fit and Lo LOVES it... but she does keep asking why Brobee is sad. He is sad in the show a lot, but also has a smiley face. However, there is no way to change that on the lifesize one... so that's been fun to try and explain why no matter how many times she kisses and hugs Brobee, he won't get happy!
Her outfit was ridiculously cute. She looked adorable in it!!
She had such a good time opening presents and she is the most gracious little girl ever. Telling everyone thank you without even being asked and every time a present would open she would gasp and say "Look at that!"
Here comes the cake!! Of course, she had to put on her new princess dress.
She blew her candle out with gusto! She knew exactly what to do!
Yum! Cake and ice cream!
It was a fabulous party, thank you so much to all who helped me put it together. Couldn't have done it without everyones help. Lorelai had such a great day and we were lucky enough to have Nana and Papa here to celebrate with us!!
I have a few more pics and some from tonight, which is her actual birthday. We went to Chuck E Cheese, so I hope to get those up sometime soon.
Lo was so into exploring the butterflies.
We didn't take too many pics now that I go back through my camera. I'll have to snap some tomorrow before we reluctantly say goodbye. I really, really am not looking forward to taking them to the airport tomorrow... seems like they just got here. I was hoping to talk my dad into staying a little longer while they were here and had a sweet 2 year old begging them to stay... but my sister broke her pelvis and my sis in law has a broken foot. So unless I can come up with an injury worse than both put together... I will be parentless tomorrow. I can't even talk about it yet.
Lo happens to LOVE Ben so much. Most of the time she calls him daddy since Lucy and Will do.
