Yes sir-ee we sure did have a parade party for our magnificent three year old Lily Belle.
I can't believe my little dream girl Lily is three. She is such sunshine in our home. She's shy, crazy, smart, silly, beautiful, hilarious, difficult, and perfect all packed into one little body.
We had approximately 100 kids over to make parade "floats" (aka produce boxes, spray painted, with fabric strips tied onto them for straps). We added news paper fringe, scrap paper shapes, and drew all sorts of awesome things on them.
We all lined up and had a parade around our block, and played at the park too! Spring decided to visit this weekend and could not have made more perfect timing. It was so sunny and warm.
Then we paraded back home to have (a HUGE) cake and popsicles (as Lily requested)
Lily loves friends over, but when on the spot, she is very shy. My sweet girl. She did brave it up enough to blow out the candles, and I'm pretty sure she was relieved when the singing was over.
Lots of friends, lots of sugar and sunshine. And we only had one birthday girl melt-down so I call it pretty successful!
And now for my favorite picture:
Happy 3rd birthday Lils, you are fabulous.
