Ava is two!  And had the sweetest little birthday party to celebrate!  Her birthday happens to fall right around Derby time and so the party took place during the big race.  How cute were the bubble wand favors for the kids?

Miss Ava was such a lady with her cupcake...requesting a spoon before she would dive in!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...Carli turned one!  And had a little bash to celebrate.  She's pretty much the most easy-going kid I've ever met and is already chasing after the big kids like it's no big deal.  And can we talk about that white canvas tent the kids were playing in?  So neat!  I think I may have to get one for our sunroom...

ONE!  How could I possibly have a ONE year old?  It's just crazy I tell you.  But here he is, walking, talking and ready to attack his smash cake.  I planned a family party full of whales, goldfish and plenty of blue and green.  With little sand pails full of treats for him to give his little friends.  He loved every moment - having all his favorite people in one room.  This kid is just so blessed.
