Addison's 5th Birthday party arrived after a very long countdown....she's been talking about it since February. It was a great success (aside from the mini monsoon that hit at the end). We had it all...grass skirts, leis, cake, balloons, pinata and more!

Let's take a look...

The Birthday Girl! So excited. She picked out her whole ensemble minus the coconut bikini top. That is where I drew the line.

The decor. Thanks to my friend Jennifer for the amazing topiaries (see top right, yes those are drink umbrellas!) and ruffled streamers (not pictured, but so cute).
Notice the palm tree Emma is next to. It's a cooler! I highly recommend it for your future luaus.

Party fun!

Wait for it...
Addison took Emma down the big slide for first time...such a good big sister! Emma LOVED it.

More party was really hard to catch them. They don't stand still long!

Finally, the pinata. I highly recommend for kids parties but they are HARD to break. We cheated and pulled the bottom apart.


Happy Birthday to my sweet Addison.

Such great pictures! I love the stampede to the fallen candy. No piece goes uneaten!

Did you use your zoom lens for these pictures???

Love the girls on the slide. Pure bliss on Emma's little face.

Love this! My dad has the same slide area in his pool and Kate took Lorelai down once. After that, Lorelai spent an hour going down that slide. So much fun to watch them interact. Your girls are so sweet! Love your blog.
