some more birthday pics

So, we had a birthday party for Lucy. . . a while ago. I'm running behind on my posts. I'm not going to even try to catch up. But I need to post these great pics from my friend, Katherine, who has such an amazing eye for a shot and obviously knows her way around a camera.

The party was carnival themed. . . and we served








We had a photo-booth for all the clowns. . .


Cupcakes. . . which Lucy LOVES. The candles? Not so much.

We also had a jump house/waterslide which Lucy still talks about.


It was huge. I guess I estimated wrong when they told me the dimensions over the phone. It took up most of the backyard!

Ned (aka Oliver's Dad) made balloon animals. . .


We had a few other carnival games around for the kids to do. A fishing pond which mostly held ducks. . .


A ball toss. . . knock down the tower of cans. (I'd been saving the cans we used for about a month. I only had to open one extra to complete the pyramid. What can I say, I guess we eat a lot of black beans!)



Opening gifts. . .




And best of all, we had a bunch of cute guests . . .


And after all that excitement, Lucy couldn't sleep. She was up till 4:00 am!
