a forth birthday party

November 02 2013 110

Lily’s birthday party was this past saturday

we debated having the party in our backyard but then decided to just rent the space at planet kids, an indoor playground facility

i think it was a wise decision

all the kids seem to have enjoyed themselves with everything the space had to offer

Lily had requested a tiger cake (what else) so Will and i surprised her with a custom cake from bunnie cakes

although we are not vegan, we liked the fact that it was a healthy cake and we got what we wanted

a double layer, chocolate and strawberry cake with white vanilla frosting and rainbow sprinkles

Lily was a little taken by having her tiger face on her birthday cake i think

the party was two hours long and it all went by way too fast

i wish i had had more time to have engaged in conversations with some of the friends who drove far (like Drea) and friends who i had not seen in a long while but, we all know how kid parties go

they are crazy

i also wish i had taken more and better pictures of Lily with her friends

but like i said, the party was only two hours and she was having way too much fun with everyone

and that is the most important part

although Lily is not officially four until thursday, i already feel like we have a four year old in our hands

so, in honor of Lily’s birthday this week, this space will be a bit more hers than usual

get ready for lots of pictures (yes, more than usual) and lots of posts about who else, lil muse Lily

happy monday friends

hope you all had a great weekend
