Jumping Jellybean

June 23rd is a pretty special day around here and one that is counted down to starting about 120 days out. Our sweet Caroline loves, loves, loves her birthday and we don't blame her one bit. She is the life of our party and one you can always count on to smile at you, hug you, encourage you and ask you how your day has been. It is safe to say we are crazy about our always moving, bouncing, jumping, flipping, Caroline! For her special day, in Caroline form, wanted to keep things simple. She doesn't like cake so instead requested a smore bar over an outdoor fire and a homemade slip n slide big enough for all of her friends to slide down. Done and done and it was a great hit. We made quite the collection of smores and thanks to a friend of ours we had a candy table full of Caroline's favorite sweets.  Here is a little peek to our day. We were so involved in the fun, that we got a mosh posh of pics from friends and ourselves. So they are not perfect, but her day was and that is all that matters!

Our S'more bar for the evening!

 Her and her gymnastics pal! 

Our entry sign greeting our friends. Since we had the slip and slide we did towels as party favors!

 Per birthday girl's request, we began our day making homemade donuts!

 Spent the day with one of her BFF's at the pool!

 Soaking up the sun!

Last request of the day was to go bowling! 
That sums up the fun we had celebrating our sweet Caroline. We are all very lucky to have this sweet kid around. She makes every one smile and has taught me a lot about being a mom to a risk taker. She will do great things, this I am sure of. " Although she be but little, she is Fierce." Happy 9th birthday to my one and only Jellybean! Keep climbing those mountains, trees, lamp posts or whatever else you see fit. You are a game changer!
