setting up... the cake, the food, the 2 pound 1 ounce (avery's birth weight) jar of jelly beans. if you had the closest guess to the number of jelly beans in the jar, you won them (congrats mandy!). in case you were wondering, avery weighed 817 jelly beans at birth!
the gift table... i just can't justify this excess. i love our friends and family and i especially love that avery is too young to realize that she is spoiled!
i think that the boys had as much fun (if not more) than the kids. they all took turns getting sponges thrown at them.
here are the carnival games i set up. throw the wet sponge at the boys, drop the clothespin in the bottle, and throw the ping-pong ball in the bowl. the kids earned tickets and then cashed them in at the prize table for cotton candy, toys, games, etc. they loved it!
it was the most beautiful day ever. the first real perfect summer day idaho has seen. perfect for a carnival!
here's klayton's mom, mackenzie and milo. i just had to post this picture because kenny is gorgeous.
and avery thought it was delicious. check out those teeth!
to speed up the process, all of the kids jumped in to open avery's presents. they had a blast... and avery loved playing in the paper...
while everyone looked on. i still have no idea what present was from who. thanks everyone! everything was great and cute and perfect! :)
my mom got avery this tent from ikea and zach set it up. elle and alexis enjoyed the shade for a bit before the party ended.
