So, Elizabeth had a birthday party almost a whole month ago. Bad mama blogger! Bad!
She wanted to have it at the community pool, and as I was still residually partied out from the Panda Extravaganza in July, I was very supportive!
Just look at that barren table:
Actually, someone must have moved all the snacks around. Because that table did actually have stuff on it besides some sad non-themed cupcakes with crooked candles.
Let's pause to mourn the other half of the cupcakes which got flipped upside down when I delegated responsibility for them elsewhere...
The other half survived though, and at least I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing just like she asked for, so that's something, right? RIGHT?
I liked this picture of some of the party girls even though Lilli has her eyes shut. The other girls look too cute:
Here's my chocolate covered birthday girl:
She really liked the cupcakes.
I don't normally post present pictures, but her expression was too cute on this not to post:
I especially like how Lilli is in the background hoping she'll hurry it up so she can hand her another present.
It may have been low key and non fancy for a birthday party, but even though I did color coordinate everything, get goodie bags together, and do some decorating at home in case we had to change the location due to lightning, I think its the most relaxed I have ever been on the day of the party, and the most relaxed time I have ever had at one of their parties. I just got to sit on a bench in the shade, baby sit everyone's stuff, and talk to whoever wasn't swimming at the time. It was awesome.
And Elizabeth told me it was the best day of her entire life.
