I had been planning my girls birthday party for two months. We finally had the party on Saturday. Let me just start off my saying, I'm so glad it's over. Now I can focus on school and get my work in on time.
It was an amazing party. The reason why we starting so early is because we had two parts to the party. We had a party at a place called, "The Rain Forest Cafe" with our close friends and family, and then a BBQ at home with more family and some of their friends. It was hectic Friday night trying to get everything ready. Saturday I was in bed by 1am and up by 5:45 am. I was exhausted but I had some final touches to take care of that included picking up the rental chairs, balloons, and cake. Then there was the whole process of picking up family at the train station. All of our family members live in NY and NJ while we're living in CT. Most of them have no cars. Finally, after getting all my babies dressed and hair done, I had to run after my hubby to make sure he had everything he needed (God forbid I don't help lol). By the time I was ready, we were about 15 minutes late. The host at the restaurant was really nice about it. She completely understood because she also has 4 kids (little did she know it wasn't them at all lol).
After a fantastic lunch of Salmon, summer veggies and an amazing Lava Cake (a warm brownie with ice cream), we went back home and got ready for our BBQ. We drank, ate some more and the girls opened up their presents. They walked up to my husband and I and thanked us with lots of hugs and kisses. They were so thrilled with everything we'd done for them. They said it was the best birthday ever! My husband and I were so happy to hear that until we realized......how are we going to top this next year????? Uh oh!!! lol Mike, my hubby, said he quits lol.
So in conclusion, I am already starting to plan for next year so that all this running around to tie loose ends doesn't happen again. lol
