Our area had a big birthday party expo a couple of weekends ago--it had all things birthday party...in fact it was like one gigantic birthday party and we all had a blast! And, as a bonus, it was free!
It was held at our local outdoor mall and this sweet girl wanted to stop and take some pictures at the mall fountains before we even entered the expo.
This guy just wanted to check out the fountains. His response to taking a picture: "No thanks."
Love her sweet little pose! She kept saying, "Mommy aren't these flowers just beautiful??"
The balloon archway where we entered.
There were a few very special guests including Goofy,
and Mickey! We were pretty excited to see, take a picture with, and high-five all three of them.
We made slime with the Mad Scientist.
What would a party be without cake? Thank you Wal-Mart for the cake, free water, and Cars and Princess cup. ( :
This was a little party-planner's booth but Lilly just sat down and had herself an imaginary tea party. Ha!
Reid picking a sucker off of the sucker tree. There were "treats" everywhere.
Lilly making a bracelet at the crafty cottage (with Daddy's help).
Reid had a blast in the bouncy house/slide.
There were some clowns.
They were a hit!
There were also lots of craft tables. We took home LOTS of artwork. (:
And Farmland Adventures was their with a little petting zoo. There were pony rides or camel rides available but we passed on those...we gave the kids a choice and they wanted to paint some pottery instead.
Petting a baby pig...
AND a baby goat.
Here they are painting their pottery. Reid is painting a car.
Lilly is painting a cat. We should be able to pick them up this week so I am excited to see what the finished product/masterpiece looks like. ( :
Watching the magician. Lilly keeps asking me to make coins appear. Ha! The only thing we didn't get done was face painting because the line was long. I made the mistake of telling Lilly we would just buy some face paint and do our own at home. I will tell you how that went in a later post. I am so glad my friend Meredith told us about this because we had a great time!
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
