Party like you're 4!!

Today we celebrated Julie's birthday with bunches of family and friends! It was a beautiful day, in the 70's (sorry east coast relatives) and it felt so good to be outside.

The kids had a blast playing together, everyone seemed to find a buddy. These two were definitely the most cooperative when it came to getting their pictures taken.
So were their Mamas. Christina and April with their boys Everett and Eli.
Mason was stylin while his Uncle Tom pushed him around the yard.
There was a pink and purple bounce house thanks to the magnificent Memere! To say it was a hit would be a huge understatement.
The birthday girl!!! (as she called herself all day)
Yeah, they are that cute in real life too.
See what I mean with the cooperation??
Again, with the adorableness.
Dawson and Julie shared a nice shady lunch.
Then it was time for cupcakes.
Everyone gathered around to sing.

She was so happy.
It looks like I am having story time, but all the kids helped Julie open her gifts. It was really sweet how they all helped and ooohed and ahhhed over everything.
And Julie was so excited about each gift. After everyone left, we went through everything again and again. And read most of the books. I LOVE new books, and so does Julie!
Auntie Arlene had a turn in the bounce house. Actually, quite a few of the grown ups did, but most of the pictures are very hard to see.
And since I didn't have the camera while we were saying goodbye to all our wonderful, amazing friends, I got my picture taken with some of them! YAY!

That never happens!

So happy 4th birthday to my beautiful, smart, loving, inquisitive, sassy girl. Can't wait to see what the next year holds!
