Party Recap

We had so much fun celebrating Megan's first birthday! Even though the highs were supposed to be in the triple digits, the humidity was low, there was a great breeze and we were mostly shaded so the heat was not bad at all.

We had an amazing turnout! Almost everyone that was invited came! Mike and I are so thankful for our wonderful friends and family that were just as excited as we were to celebrate our sweet baby girl.

My mom and I had set up special kid-centric seating areas and games. They loved the kiddie couch and chairs, but weren't so impressed with our homemade games. I had pin the bow on the Goose and a big fishing game set up with prizes and everything. They were not interested in those at all. Every single kid wanted to play with the little toddler fishing game I had set up in a baby pool. They also enjoyed playing with the Cozy Coupes.

The other big hit of the party was "Megan's first year: the movie". I spent countless hours on this masterpiece and was so happy with how it turned out. It ended up being 15 minutes exactly and I was so worried it would be too long. It was perfect! It played on a loop in the living room so the adults that lingered in there could catch bits and pieces of it at their leisure. It was a popular feature.

    Paula from Frog Prince Paperie custom designed it for us! It's an etsy shop, here's the link: http://www.etsy.com/people/FrogPrincePaperie# I'm sure they still have the design if you message them and ask for it. I don't think they have this one listed.
