Birthday Weekend

We had a busy week this past week with 2 birthdays and party day for all three. I say all three because even though Laney's birthday was in July we never got to celebrate it with family. We were moving the same weekend as her birthday so we decided to wait until we got to Ga. I did not realize how crazy of a move we would have and add homeschooling on top of that. Needless to say, her birthday got pushed to the same weekend as Griffin and Ella's. We had family come and a couple of friends. Simple and easy! We ate, opened presents and did cake at the house then headed to the base for the Big Summer Bash. Griffin turned 14, Laney 7 and Ella 4. They wanted to open presents so we did that first. They got clothes, jewelry, toys. Ella's big present was the Leapfrog Tag reader with books. Griffin's was his new bike that he plans to ride home from school. Laney got her big present back in July.

Ella wanted a castle cake for her birthday. So I got out the cake decorating
supplies and created a this cake. It only took until 1:30 in the morning to finish it.
Laney wanted cupcakes with princess crowns.
Griffin wanted an ice cream cake in the beginning but changed his mind closer to time to a sand cake. I was glad because it was much easier to do. I asked Griffin to smile before I took his picture and this is what I got.
Ella loved her cake!

Now for the fun part the Summer Bash. They had rides, games, prizes, music, and food. It was like a mini fair. The kids had a blast.
Griffin, Ashton, Cameron and Owen paused quickly for a picture in between activities.
Laney favorite thing was the rock wall. She made it all the way to the top but not quite far enough to reach the buzzer.
Ella getting her tattoo.
Griffin's new tat a flying dragon.

It was a great day. I have to say it was one of the easiest parties to plan so far in my mommy party planning career.
