Another fun year! Another year of worrying if Mother Nature would cooperate. Thankfully she did (but we still got a tent).
This year we got John from Monkey Rock to come again. Last year she was bouncing away and this year she did not disappoint. She actually recognized some of the songs!
Something we did different this year was a pinata! It was great fun, but we didn't choose the right stick. I guess it's all about the stick.
This year as you can see the theme was MONKEY...right down to the cake.
Olivia was so fortunate to have an abundance of gifts. People were so very generous and thoughtful. I've packed some away for those rainy days of boredom. There was one gift that Oliva (acutally we wanted) to try was her new roller blades. Yes, she is a fast runner, but will that translate to awesome skater? Only time will tell. I think she was more amused with the whole set-up (the helmet, pads, and skates) than acutally skating. Of course though, like true Olivia style, if she couldn't go fast it in, she wasn't happy. I'm thinking it'll take her a few month to get the hang of it, then we are really screwed.
All in all, it was another perfect day. Olivia had a blast and I think everyone else did too. We still can't believe our little one is 2. When you ask her she's still says she's 1 but quickly corrects herself and says "Un an no...deux ans!" She's our little monkey. Even after the day she had, she was the last one standing at the end of the day. We were all pooped. That's our girl.
