Celebrating . . .

This weekend we celebrated Megan's birthday with lots of friends in our backyard.  It was such a beautiful day with no humidity and bright blue skies!! 

 Meg wanted pink and purple cupcakes.  She also wanted chocolate and since it's hard to change brown into pink or purple we compromised and gave her pink and purple sprinkles instead.  : ) 

 Our "adopted" son Jakhai and his family came from Manhattan for the day.  The above photo is Jakhai and his nephew Noel after having a water fight.  : )

Jakhai's sister, Gianna and Noel.
Jakhai's other sister, Gio and her gorgeous son, NaShaun (Noel's little brother). 
Jakhai's beautiful Mama and my Sistafriend, Hope.  It's so hard to believe she's a Grandma or, as she calls herself, a "Glamma."  Perfect!!!  : )

Meg's friend, Isa, waiting for the cupcakes.
Isa's baby brother, Rohan.  His eyes are gorgeous!!  It looks like they're going to be green like his Mama's!!
The youngest attendee at Megan's party was Miss Chelsea.  She just turned two weeks old.  So adorable!!!
Daddy fixing Meggie's helmet so she could ride her new bike.
My beautiful nephew Andre who doesn't normally like me to take his picture but let me this time.  : )
Mr. Bigglesworth.
 Jim was able to open the pool and some of the bigger kids actually swam in it even though the water was very cold and the temperature wasn't very hot.  The girls were smart and decided to just put their feet in. 

Jim with Isa, Meg's BFF Cybele and Megan.
A very special thank you to Mimi and Grandpop in Florida and Gram and Pop in Tennessee for the beautiful new bouncy castle they gave Megan for her birthday to replace the one that popped last year.  Megan and her friends LOVED bouncing in it the entire day!!!!  XOXOXO

New friendships were made and lots of fun was had.  All in all, I'd say it was a perfect day!!  Couldn't ask for more than that!!  : )

Many blessings for a very happy Thursday ~ Wendy
