A Bouncin’ Birthday!

This past weekend, Gigi celebrated her birthday with bounce houses!  We were joined by grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a few close friends for some bouncin’ fun.  (As usual in blogworld, I’m not able to use all the pictures I took, because I don’t have permission from everyone’s parents to post pics.)

The birthday princess!  Am I noticing a royal theme here??

Grace and her Ariel cake…another one of Nanny’s masterpieces!

She has been excited about the bounce houses for weeks…but when we got there and encouraged her to bounce,  she was like, “Umm, no, that’s okay.”  The place was loud and intimidating!  But luckily, it didn’t take long before she joined in the fun!

Seamus was a maniac, as I knew he would be…he didn’t hesitate to climb to the top of this very steep slide and come barreling on down!

Time for cake!  Gigi and her BFF Ava.

And just because I like adding in a flashback pic of the baby days…here is my baby girl!

And now she’s my big girl!  Happy birthday to my sweet, goofy, sassy, silly little girl!  I can’t believe you are three!

Your mother outdid herself with that cake! Her cakes are awesome! She should open a store! I love all these pictures. We love those bounce house parties. I have to show Pres the picture of Seamus going down the slide by himself. This is something Preston is still afraid to do. I try to explain he cannot get hurt! Anyway, I cannot believe Grace is THREE! She looks so darn pretty in all these pictures. That baby picture in the star sweater is one of my favorites!

Happy Belated 3rd Birthday Miss Grace ... I'm so behind in blog land :0( Adorable pictures, she is so angelic. The difference between her and Caden ... Caden would have that cake (an adorable cadke at that!) flying rather then nicely pose for a picture with it :0)
I love the picture of Seamus on the slide ... looks like he scored on the birthday adventure this year too!
