It has become a bit of a tradition to throw large lavish birthday parties for the girls. We are often the party hosts and we love doing it so what better excuse to get together with friends and family?
For Cate's First Birthday we had a Garden Party in our backyard.
For Cate's Third Birthday we really went all out and held a Princess Party at my inlaws beautiful home just out of town.
Really, there was no topping that last party.
With two kids in daycare full time, the purse strings were a little tighter this year and so we decided that it would be a kids only party. Also, Cate had already "invited" all of her little daycare friends to her party, so I figured why not? I searched around for the right venue for the party, and as it turns out, it was right in our neighbourhood!

Half and hour later, the party host came out, called all the kids down, and lead them into the "enchanted forest" for another 30 minutes of princess themed obstacles course, parachute games, and of course, bubbles.
They then headed over to the party room for hot dogs and lemonade, followed by the princess cupcakes that we brought in. The hostess took care of everything, including tending to the kids' requests for 5 refills each! Next we moved onto presents and Cate was in her glory with all her little buddies around her. When she finished up, there were still a few minutes left, so the hostess put on a few magic tricks to keep the kids entertained until the very end.

Overall, the party was a hit and both girls were well worn out by the end of the day. Success!
