But it turned out pretty cute! The weather was perfect, everyone came and made Maeve feel so special. I'm not sure we'll ever hear the end of her mermaid party... but that's okay, as the point was to give her a fantastic day of memories.
I'm working on a "serious" birthday post for her... a letter, kind of like I wrote to Stella on her first birthday.
waiting in line to dig through the treasure box....
picking out treasures is serious business and must be discussed.
Digging for treasure in the sandbox that papa built...
Funny story to remember: My mom and grandma got balloon bouquets from Publix, and for unknown reasons, they kept popping- just randomly popping, one after another. So my mom snipped all the "dead ends" and brought them back into Publix, demanding (as much as my mom can demand) new balloons... we now have a house full of balloons. Good to know you can return popped balloons though, right? ;)
Gosh I kind of slacked big time on pictures of her party. As always there's that line of wanting to capture the memories, but wanting to live in the moment with them. It's an impossibility for me to juggle both. Ugh.
