Anna's Birthday Party





Anna's fourth birthday party was today. It was a princess party, complete with cake, games, a pinata, and a princess bouncer. She was overwhelmed with gifts. I had to upload two sets of photos in this blog, see the other photos in pt2. We all had a good time, including Jason, who held his own in a bouncer with kids older than him!

Anna's Fourth Birthday part 2

















Here are the second set of photos. The pinata photo is amazing, she looks like she is up to something. Giving her a bat, was a great idea!!! That poor pinata never had a chance. See the photo at the bottom of her swinging. The other photos are of Anna's princess bouncer, and of course Jason (whose shirt says it all).
