The party was a big hit. We had nearly 50 friends and family members in our home, one third were children and it was wild, but not out of control. We rented a large bouncer with a climbing wall and slide. The bigger kids helped the little kids get up the wall and they all seemed to have a great time. Mom was so busy that she forgot to take any pictures, so we will have to rely on those supplied by our friends.
Chloe and Pearl both enjoyed every minute playing with their friends and bouncing around. Instead of a birthday cake, Mom made a "cupcake tree". Too bad I didn't get a picture of it or of Chloe blowing out her candle. Actually, she refused to blow, but her friends helped her and she dived right into eating. The cupcakes disappeared in no time at all and Pearl was the only one there who insisted on using a fork to eat hers. She is such a neat girl. We had 46 cupcakes and there was only one left over after the party. Half were chocolate and half were strawberry. All had red frosting and an Elmo candy face or Elmo ring.
