All week I watched the weather in anticipation of Saturday. By Thursday it was clear the weather was not going to cooperate. So, I sent out an email to friends. And, in lieu of the outdoor party in the park, we had a small family get-together at home. Raffa had a blast, which obviously was the only priority for me!
Last year, I made a banner and this year's project (albeit an easy one) was a number "2" made out of photos. The project took all of a half an hour on Friday night, and was made up of about 40 more recent photos of Raffa. (I used The Print Studio to print recent photos of Raffa off of my Instagram feed.)
Raffa and Asher did some coloring with (Great) Grandma Shirley and Mimi. Raffa is obsessed with coloring, and loves his big Hello Kitty coloring sheets.
Originally, when the park was going to be at the park, party favors were supposed to be one of Raffa's favorite books for each kiddo, some gem crayons, and cat figurines (hey, Raffa likes cats). Instead Raffa and Asher each got more gem crayons, and Asher got a couple of Raffa's favorite books.Donut Monday) and coffee from our favorite, Huckleberry Roasters.
I had ordered Sippy McSippersons from Shop Sweet Lulu thinking they had holes for straws punched in the caps. They didn't, so they were the most expensive toddler drinkware that was no more practical than a paper cup. Unfortunate, but all well. And, I have about ten left over since only Raffa and Asher used them.
Raffa, of course, enjoyed his donuts. He had one and half to be exact. A pink one and a "brown" (chocolate) one.
Mimi made the funfetti sprinkle cake which was delicious, although it was a lot of sweets on top of the donuts previously eaten.my park party plans were spoiled by rain. The day turned out amazingly perfect.
