August is always our crazy month. We celebrate 5 birthdays and our anniversary each year, but it is also a month that reminds us just how blessed we are! Now that we can breathe again, I am SO excited to share some pictures from the festivities.
One of our celebrations this August was Dayla turning 3 years old! One of our TOP blessings in life is that we had the joy of having Dayla in the same month that 5 other friends had their babies. We love it. And we love that this offers us the opportunity to share the birthday party throwing duties/stress with two other families! I hope we get to keep doing the “joint birthday party” for Dayla until she is 18, but if that doesn’t work, we will do it until she asks for her own. For now, she loves it!
This year we had the gift of a free bounce house, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate the bounce house into a theme….so I came up with “Carnival!” Hence the 3×3 Carnival was born! Three little girls, all turning 3, a new house to host it at, and a lot of friends to share in the joy. We went all out (3 moms means 3x the ideas and 3x craftiness!), but it was SO fun doing it, and I think everyone got a kick out of our craziness too (not to mention, it makes fun pictures to share with you!) Without further ado….

Welcome to the Carnival:
Come to the Midway…where the lights were hung, and the games are played!
First, get your tickets at the ticket booth….
To enjoy some carnival games…
And of course, if you win (which everyone does at a 3 year old’s party), come and get prizes!
(This is Kaitlyn showing off hers!)
The Grill Master wants to remind you, once you have worked up your appetite, enjoy a carnival hot dog
(with all the toppings of course!)…
Which we think they did…
…especially our birthday girls! They got treats right and left….but hey, it WAS their party…..
….And it ended with smiles had by all.
