This weekend we went to Forth Worth for Princess Newbie’s birthday party.
As they have the past two years my in-laws graciously hosted a pool party for her. And as it’s been the past two years, Mr. Byrd gets in the pool and harasses all the kids while I stay out of the pool and play lifeguard/ savior to Mr. Byrd when they start attacking him.
Here’s the birthday spread. It was all Curious George since we call her monkey and she just happens to love Curious George. Plus it was all 50% off at the party store. We saved the decorations and are passing them down to friends. Soon I’m going to write a blog post about why I’m not going all super Pinterest crafter for my kid’s birthday parties.
Yes, her pool float that she loves more than life itself, Mr. Duck, even made the trip. But I didn’t know that he was safely deflated and stored in the dirty clothes bag for the ride home. He might have been washed. Hopefully he’ll still float.
Does anyone else also want to caption this one, “You’re doing it wrong”?
My mother-in-law was a genius (must run in the family by marriage) and ordered a cotton candy machine for the party. When she told me I seriously thought not so great thoughts because I hate ~ HATE ~ traditional cotton candy. But, this was so good! Not only that but everyone loved it! Kids and adults alike all flocked to it. If you’re having a party soon, I recommend renting one from your local party supply store. My sister said she was going to get one for my brother-in-law’s birthday in a few months. Somehow I believe her.
We had a great almost full two hours of swimming and eating before a little storm showed up and the pool party had to be closed down.
All good things must come to an end right? The sad thing wasn’t the party getting shut down but the company coming to pick the cotton candy machine back up. That was sad.
If you’re in Northwest Ft. Worth and want the name of the company that my MIL got the bounce house and cotton candy machine from, just ask!
