I remember now why I don’t like loading photos onto the blog and why Facebook is so superior. This blog is on a constant and regular basis unable to load photos without errors or just simply taking eons of time. While I have several really great photos from this party, as a busy pregnant mom this is all I can bear to use for the blog. The kids had such a fun time of feasting and playing at my mother-in-laws house this past Sunday. Most folks were dressed up and we all had a ball. Caleb is so serious here because it was part of his “character.” Haha. Too cute.
It was so neat, there was a stone backdrop on the house, medieval music, treasure [which Madelyn LOVED], tons of food, and fun activities for the kids. Caleb was thrilled to be allowed to use his archery set all day long and was probably the most he has gotten to play with it since receiving it for Christmas [our backyard is the size of a postage stamp, or so it seems]. At one point there was a quest for the kids to go on and solve riddles, one of which involved what looked like a really awesome paper mache dragon. WAY cool. All in all, we had huge amounts of fun, waaaayyyy too much food, and a great time with the kids.
**EDIT** I’ve had some rest and a snack and it is another day… I must load some more pictures of this amazing party!!!!
The girls and the treasure!
Gorgeous potted decorations… though I question whether any flower arrangements were this pretty back then 😉

Oh my. He is just melt your heart precious with that smile!
So, I may be biased, but I think this archer is the handsomest 😉
And now, their fierce side!
This child was gathering [read: hoarding] the treasure as fast as she could put it all on and carry it away
