There was kids...lots and lots of kids

Last week the kids and I got to go to a little boggy friend party at MckMama's house. I almost chickened out because I do not like going places by myself when I don't know anyone there. Although I did know one person and I kind of knew some others but only through blogging so I didn't really know them in person. Well, I went way out of my comfort zone and SO glad that I did! We had a such an awesome time. The kids had a blast and I met some really great women.

There was lots of mommies, babies, food, talking, laughing, lemonade, bouncing, screaming, jumping and kids...and by kids I mean A LOT of kids. Jennifer is a much braver woman to let all those little people run around her house for hours on end!

I finally got the chance to hold and cuddle up to this little guy.

If you think Stellan couldn't get any more adorable in his pictures you'd be wrong. He is such a little cutie, and so happy. I'm pretty sure he loved getting so much attention from all of us girls!

Alexa now asks on a daily basis when we get to go back to Jennifer's house to play with her friends and bounce on the trampoline. She played so hard she slept the whole way home and then crawled in bed and slept some more.

Braden had fun crawling around with all the other littlest little people and was all about watching the bigger kids bounce on the bouncy castles and run around him.

My IRL friend Amanda was also there and brought a little surprise for everyone. This cake...

And I don't think I could even explain how much of a hit this thing was. The kids loved it, the moms loved it. It was A.MAZ.ING! She said it was really easy to make...I don't know if I buy it. And YES it was a delicious as it looks!

I'm so happy I left my comfort zone, we had a lot fun! I can't wait to get together with our new friends again!

I saw McMama's post about this. What a great way to spend a day. I agree, it's hard for me, also, to step out of my comfort zone. How cool...I want to make that cake too.

shannon said...

oh and ps. after seeing a picture of the most amazing cake on the planet made by your CLEARLY rad friend, i HAD to look up the recipe, as cake truly is the way to my heart. i am hoping that i can make it for mk's birthday! and i will admit, that while the recipe does seem relatively easy, i'm sure i will find some way to screw it up. i usually do. so anyway, ramble ramble, hopefully your friend doesn't mind if i ATTEMPT to copy her. it's just too cool not to!

Looks like so much fun! I was going to ask you if Stellan is as cute in person as he is in the pictures but then I read it right after I thought it! Weird!!!! :) That cake looks super delicious and so fun. I am going to have to try my hand at it. :)
