olivia’s 2nd birthday party!

today was great!  it started off pretty chilly but ended up being just warm enough to enjoy being outside!  we had o’s party at trinity and that’s probably the best decision i’ve made all year!  natalie did a great job on the invitations!Olivia Invitation[1] before the party o got to play with her new kitchen!  this thing was a BIG hit!  she and gg played before the party and then o played with it from the time we got home until she went to bed!IMG_9249 IMG_9250 we ended up moving the party from the gym to the playground b/c the gym was suppose to be under renovation.  turns out the contractors couldn’t start yet but i decided to keep it on the playground.  despite the chilly temps i think it worked out better!  we had this sign directing our guests away from the gym and to the playground.  and then the back was our good-bye to our guests.  i’m not sure anyone saw these but i tried! IMG_9263 IMG_9265 o got some good playtime in before her friends arrived!IMG_9326 IMG_9271 IMG_9267 IMG_9268 and then the party started.  even the cat in the hat came!   IMG_9272
