Offspring #2 had her birthday party this afternoon. We had some little friends from playgroup and creche, along with their families, over for lots of yummy food, some games, face painting and lots of fun in the backyard. Everyone had a great time, all the kids played beautifully, the food was great - a little too much but not crazily so - and the birthday cake was a big hit. Added to that, I worked REALLY hard at not stressing over every little detail and at not being totally insane about the whole thing and Hubby was most impressed by those efforts!
So... some pics of the whole thing. We borrowed a camera for the day and it takes the most gorgeous photos. Now I want one just like it.

A beautiful shot of mass bubble blowing.
The birthday cake - another cupcake birthday cake, but this one had some fancy icing and pretty sparkly bits.
And singing Happy Birthday. You can see how impressed #2 is by the whole thing. I also love #1's "Blues Brothers" impersonation!
