Absolutely no quilty content. . .
but this week was Bentlee's sixth birthday, and Sunday was our family celebration for her. So, Blogger willing, here's loads of photos commemorating the occasion!!
Shannon and I were up early in the morning to make the cakes: two sheet cakes, one vanilla and one chocolate, and a couple dozen cupcakes for the kids. Shannon is not a morning person, but we got them going and done in record time. Here she is pouring the cupcake batter. . .
After waiting for everything to cool, Shannon decorated-- pretty pink for the pretty princesss!
Some of the family got together for lunch before the party. Hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, and of course, DJ's famous bean dip- yum! And, best of all, it's easy to make!!
Dad and Grandpa manned the grill- while Sadie tried to talk Jaden into a game of catch-- unsuccessfully.
Jaden could hardly get his mouth around his hamburger- but don't get in his way trying to help!
After lunch, we all headed over to the pavilion-- and the rest of the birthday celebrants showed up. Bentlee had fun opening all her presents- and there were LOTS!!
Bentlee got a lei in one of presents, and treated us to a demonstration of a hula. . .
After the presents, all the kids got a chance at the pinata. . .
and Jaden, who gave us lots of verbal enthusiasm, but not a dent in the pinata. . .
After candy, cake, and ice cream, the kids all headed off to cool off on the the slip and slide. . .
Even the big kids, here's Dad hitting the water!!
A good time was had by all. HAPPY SIXTH BIRTHDAY, BENTLEE!!!
