Sunday, October 5







betsy and mark took a lot of pictures....just a quick sampling from the festivities on saturday.

velzy was one happy birthday girl and her party was really, really fun. all she wanted was balloons (which kids ran around crazy with them the whole time), cake (which the kids demolished and enjoyed) and to play at the beach (which we played and surfed at, including ivy for her first time!).
a big mahalo and mega-shaka to all our friends who came to celebrate with us, we love you all!

~~go check this out- especially shanae and megan- it's the water pics of your little ones surfing. thanks malia!

Looks like an incredible fiesta! I loved having balloons at my parties when I was little. Not that they had helium in them or anything fancy like that. Kids just like ballons hanging around. Love the pictures and your beautiful baby bump below. Happy Birthday Blondie!

I'm a lurker... love your blog and all the cool pictures - how do you get your pictures formatted like that (small and in collage-type)?? Will you share?

Thanks!

The mermaid cake was so cute and I love that you caught a picture of one of them licking the Barbie butt!

i love the picture of the foot with the dirty flip flip mark! very cute!

ashley said...

dear kristen lurker- i just loaded them all as small and formated to the right then placed each one next to each other. blogger formating bugs me, but this one actually turned out!

Super fun party! Happy Birthday, Velz! Thanks for the invite, and Aiken and Eva definitely enjoyed themselves. Eva's still talking about Aiken's baloon that went up into the trees. That girl has a one track mind. Definitely a fan of the demolished cake! Classic!

What a fun birthday! I love Velzy's cheesy smile. Wish her a happy birthday for us (though she probably can't remember who we are). And I absolutely loved the picture of Ivy surfing. How awesome! Can I be as cool of a mom one day as you are?!

Jennelle said...

So sorry we missed the festivities. Looks like you guys had a good time. Eden decided to take her nap just about 15 minutes before the party started and slept for a good 2 and a half hours. Jonathon and I used the time to catch up on some packing and moving...we are ALMOST done. I can't wait till it's over. Anyway, hope you are having fun on your vacation! Happy Birthday Velzy!!
