Perfect Party

I'd have to say that J's 3rd Birthday Party was really great.

I deemed this birthday the "Over-achiever (aka too much) birthday." Last year it was the "rainy birthday", and the first birthday was definitely the "cake disaster birthday" (not my cake).

This year everything pretty much worked out. The only thing that didn't take shape were the dragon chocolates that I tried to make, but I think I overheated the chocolate as it lost it's sheen. The dragon eggs turned out great and were loved by all. The cake was pretty and delicious, if I do say so myself. And there was no one using the park when I got there, which I was thrilled about. We got all the tables under the gazebo and the weather was perfect, in the low 70's. We had tomato basil salad, veggies, fruit with dip, crackers, cake and dragon snot punch which J referred to as Booger Punch and of course had to make a funny face every time he drank it. We had too much food, too many drinks, way too much ice and soo many gifts including the vitamins that he kept telling me he was getting for his bithday. There were perfect number of people who all seemed to have a great time chatting, playing on the playground, in the sand and with the bubbles which were a big hit.

After the party we took my BIL and niece, and a good friend who drove an hr down with her two girls, to pizza. All the kids got along together great (3,6,6,8) and it was wonderful to finally catch up.

As soon as I get pictures from my sister I'll make a birthday slide show. Until then here is a pic of the cake and the eggs.
