Birthday Party

We had a big party for Claire this past weekend. We had both families, Ryan and Jessica Salmon and kiddies, Ryan and Camilla Pratt and baby Everee, and her great grandparents. We gathered at the church and had yummy food, and the kids ran around like crazy. I put together a small scavenger hunt for all of the kids, and it was cute to see them get so excited. The funny thing is that Claire couldn't have cared less about it and wasn't even with the group when they finally found their treasure. She did like her bag of candy however! Erin made her a darling and delicious cake. She also made cupcakes and that's what Claire chose to eat. I guess she really didn't eat it, she just stabbed the frosting with her fork, but she sat forever doing it! She got spoiled with presents, but was so into her tootsie pop that she didn't seem to care (nice). Thank you everyone, since we've been home, she's been thrilled with her gifts! All in all, it was an awesome party. There was no stress of watching kids. We had the whole building, and they could run where they wanted. Most of all, it was just nice to have family around for her special day. We love you booba!
A sick picture of us, but I had to post it just to remember!
She loved everyone singing to her, but she wasn't quite sure what she was supposed to do with the candles.
The awesome cake! Thanks again Erin!
The gift opening. She's not smiling in any of the...little stinker!
