For Emma's 2nd birthday we decided to have it at our home. Having a winter birthday means we have very unpredictable weather in Southern California. Its either rainy, gloomy, sunny, crazy Santa Ana winds, or hot. We got gloomy and slightly rainy. We pushed forward with the bounce house and had some friends and family come over to play.
Words cannot express how lucky and blessed I feel to have such an amazing source of support from both my family and friends. As I have gotten older, I realize more and more what champion parents I have. They raised 4 children and did it so well. I look to them for guidance and knowledge on how to do the same with Emma. Aside from my parents, my in-laws have also been incredibly supportive and loving and full of parenting knowledge that I would not known otherwise.
Below are a few images of the day....I wish I had some of the family and friends, but when hosting a party, taking pictures is the last thing on my mind...I just want to party too :)
I made her cake this year. Strawberry with vanilla frosting.
She woke up to streamers on her door.
She found the cupcakes and helped herself to one for breakfast.
Singing Happy Birthday!
Pinata time. Daddy is operating the string and Uncle Buj is instructing.
Chance cracked open the pinata and the kids were collecting their goods.
More goodies to pick!
