Three Birthdays and a Festival
July, 2005

Alex and Hannah's Birthday party was delayed for a couple of months because Hannah was in the hospital on their actual birthday.  Here are some pictures from the original party:

The festivities in July began downstairs.

Decorations, balloons and games!

Matt won the candy by guessing how many were in the bowl.

The party then moved outside for decorating crowns, the pinatâ and water balloon throwing.

Matt, Alex and grabbing the loot!

Erin didn't participate much....Quincy tried to participate in the water balloon throwing.

The extra water balloons were thrown around...some adults played as much as the children!

The party moved inside for cake, ice cream and the opening of presents.

Alex and Hannah really liked their cake!

Did I promise you three birthdays?  Well.....we had a surprise birthday party for Carrie's dog, Sir Jameson!
