My friend Kara's daughter is turning one in a few weeks so she and her husband threw a birthday party at their house this weekend so that they could take advantage of the warm fall weather (and their gorgeous, newly-landscaped backyard). What a doll Olivia the birthday girl is!
Her hat is courtesy of the balloon man who was there to make fun creations for all the little kids.
There was also this fun jumpy thing for the kids to play in:
There was an outdoor BBQ for lunch and then a fancy schmancy cake. (How cool is that?!) The inside tasted as good as it looked!! The smaller cake was Olivia's personal cake :)
Olivia wasn't quite sure what to do with her cake at first, but with a little help she figured it out!
This adorable little cutie is Shannon & Jere's little guy, Jonah. He also has his first birthday later this week!
The party wasn't ALL about the kids, the adults had fun too :)
Mary, Leah and Me (whoever took this pic was aiming right at the bright sun!! Oh well, still cute- just a coincidence that we were all wearing shades of turquoise and teal)
Shannon and Gina
And one with Kara and all her girls
Thanks for the fun party, Kara and Jesse!
