Okay, where were we?!? Oh, yes, so since I recapped Thursday's pre-birthday activities, it's time to move onto Friday's festivities! I picked my beloved Aunt Kay up at the airport midday on Friday and afterward hosted a pre-birthday party for my friend's little ones -- you know, the two-year old set, who wouldn't be able to make it to Saturday night's bash. It happened to be Amelie's actual 2nd birthday so there were ice cream treats for the children (and adults!) and cocktails for their parents. Fortunately, we had much better weather for their pool party than we did for the adult's party on Saturday night. Here are some shots of the fun! Thanks to everyone for joining! Wouldn't it be fun to do this every Friday afternoon?
Everyone in the pool!
Some of the fifty+ set (grandparents and "play" grandparents) enjoyed catching up sans bathing suits...
Even baby Harper got her feet wet!
Gunter and Annika (a.k.a. the big kids) helped build a raft that others enjoyed...
We all scream for ice cream!
Annika, the best big sister in the world!
The birthday girl, Amelie
Our new friend, Genevieve
Our regular visitor, Thomas
Kindra and her boys, Henry and Jack
LEW and Amelie hugging good-bye. Is there anything cuter?
After the pool party concluded (Henry and Jack were the last to leave...funny, so was their mom and dad at the adult party?!), my family (Mom, Dad, Bobby, Aunt Kay, and me) hit our favorite spot, Carlyle, for a delicious dinner. Then we came home and figured out all that needed to be done on Saturday for the big bash! At the rate I'm going who knows when I'll post all of the pictures from the party and other birthday celebrations but I promise to try and be in touch before the end of the week. Right now, I'm going to turn my attention to another project I'm working on while killing time before I'm called in for today's Day 8 treatment, which it looks like I'll be able to receive based on where my blood levels were on Monday. Fingers crossed! Oh, and here's a hint about the project I'm working on, check it out: http://www.tealtoes.org/
