Birthday party #2

 On Saturday we had a birthday party for the girls at our house.  The theme was Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  This is one of Hadley's favorites shows.  It is a newer show so you can't buy anything for birthday parties.  Throw that in with the fact that I didn't want anything with skull and crossbones and there wasn't much to choose from.  We did have pirate bandannas for everyone.  Here is a picture of Mike helping put on Hadley's.  He was a good daddy and wore one too.

 We rented a castle bouncy for the main entertainment.  Hadley jumped on this from about 1:30pm to 6pm.  Needless to say her legs were hurting before bed and she slept hard that night.

 Here are the birthday girls before the party.

 It was raining off and on the day of the party so we set it all up in the driveway and garage.  We had a coloring table, big and little bouncies and a place to dig for gold coins.  The kids all seemed to have a great time and the rain held off for the whole party.

 This is Caroline and I could look at her beautiful face all day.
 I think Hadley enjoyed her cupcake.  Just a side note on the cake, Mike and I had every intention of making a treasure chest cake.  We attempted it on Friday night and it was a flop.  It fell apart and looked like someone had just thrown a cake onto a plate.  We just changed our plans and had cupcakes with gold treasures on top.

The girls received lots of wonderful gifts.  We have been keeping busy with new toys, games, crafts and books. 

 This is what present opening looks like at little kids birthday parties.
The girls had a great party!
