Birthday Party Whoop Whoop!

We got almost everything done last night, and still managed to run a little behind today. We didn't have everything completely set up when the first guests started arriving but eventually it all got done. Thank goodness for family and friends who helped out! The party had a good turn out, 35 or so guests...we had planned for more so of course we had way too much food Hahaha never fails, but better to have too much than too little. The kiddos had a good time, and got a good 4 hours of play and party time. It was about 80 degrees out which was a nice change from the 3 or 4 days before that were in the 90's. It was still hot being outside and trying to keep up with 3 toddlers. We thankfully had a lot of baby wranglers that were kind enough to help out. We got to the park around 2pm, by 6:30pm I had had enough and was ready to go...most of the guest had just left or were getting ready to go. So we ended up doing gift opening at home, in the air conditioning LOL. Lots of pics of the fun...I tried to narrow them down but there is still a lot LOL.
Thanks so much to everyone!!!
Pics from the party!

Jason made the watermelon baskets and cut up all the fruit.

Cookies Jason made, you can also see the people playing soccer...Hayden kept trying to join their game.

My friend Jeana, she went to work putting the centerpieces together when I looked at it for 2 min. and said I give up LOL.

She got them both in no time...cut me some slack, she has been a Mom longer than me :)

Uncle Scott and Uncle Rick helping to tape the table cloths down.

Some friends keeping the trio entertained while we finished setting up. William and Hannah were very nice to let the trio play with their bubbles. Lily was loving all the Mickey Mouse stuff.

Meet the mice...Xander

Miss Hayden

LilyBug and their friend Hunter.

Good bubble blowing form Lily, just got the stick a little too close.

Xan and Uncle Rick had a great time playing ball.

Hunter joined in too.

Hayden and Lily did spend a little time on the play equipment and of course in the swings.

Most of the time our little soccer star was busy impressing everyone with her ball kicking skills.

The cake...yummy!

Lily made the first grab while we were trying to take pictures, then Xander and Hayden had to join in.

Hayden decided to get shy...and get cake all over her face.

Make a wish....

When the party started breaking up Lily got to play with the balloons.

Hayden was ready to go home.

When we got home we found these great gifts on our porch...thanks Gayle and fam!

Gift opening time!!!

They were a lot more into it this year LOL

I am not sure who likes this truck more Xan or Lily.

Lots of great bubbles...they also got their 1st play-doh set and an awesome set of crayons and paints and chalk.

They loved these new cups...can't wait to try them out.

Some new PJs

Lily and Xander modeled theirs for us but Miss Hayden was just too busy.

They love their new books, here the girls are both yelling "Elmo"

Our little readers.

So many great gifts!

Grandma hand made these stufties.

They have changed and grown so much over this last year, it is really bittersweet. I am almost done with their 2nd year montage...stay tuned!

Baby #4 front...I hit 15 weeks today, here is my belly pic. I think I am up 4 lbs now, and have been feeling a lot better lately.
