Party Girl

There is nothing more fun than watching your child run around and play with bubbles with a room full of her toddler friends. We had Catherine's 2nd birthday party last weekend at The McWane Science Center. It is one of her favorite places to go, so it was an easy decision when it came to party planning this year. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint!

We were early (my fault) and had to wait for fifteen minutes before we could go back to the party room. Fifteen minutes is an eternity to a two year old, so she had a mini meltdown right before her party started. Poor thing. Waiting is hard.

But, as soon as she got a milk and was wheeled back to her room, she was a happy girl.
Bubbles AND goldfish?!
The room we got was perfect. The main activity set up was a big bubble table with tons of wands, but the room was also full of other activities for little ones. C got right to work!

It was so much fun to see all of her friends playing. The funny thing about this age is that while they are often playing together, they are rarely playing together. Regardless, I think they all enjoyed themselves!

When it was time for cake and singing, Catherine was a little shy, until she heard her name. Then she got excited. She worked so hard to blow out those two candles (then Mommy helped a little)!

Yummmmm. Cake and Ice cream!

It was so much fun to be surrounded by family and friends. I didn't get nearly enough photos of Catherine with everyone (including one with Mommy and Daddy), but I am so grateful for a room full of people we love and I know she had a blast.

After the official party was over, everyone was free to roam and play in the McWane Center. Catherine pretty much parked it at the water table - her favorite spot. It was such a fun party!
