birthday balloons

we had a pretty big birthday around here.

bebe boy turned the big one.

since he is pretty nuts about balloons, we threw him a party, all about balloons.

 we started by slipping these little balloons into the mail to a few of bebe's little friends and family.

i had visions of our spring green yard being lined with balloons.  but mother nature wasn't up for that.  she wanted to rain and rain and rain.  so plan b.  fill the neighbor's basement with 100 helium balloons. 
turns out that there is no better way to celebrate and entertain a few of evan's little friends than to let they run through a room of ribbons attached to balloons. 

i don't know how we didn't have lift off when a 20 pound darling girl was amassed in 50 balloons and their attached curly ribbons.  
happy birthday to you!
 not so sure here...  mom's never let me have sugar before...   
i think i could get the hang of this!
 not quite sure what to do with the birthday loot...
   
then we each tied wishes for the birthday boy to the balloons. grateful that the sun showed up for this part!

 and sent them up, up, and away!
then we sent all the littles home with their very own balloon.  the animal crackers assisted in preventing lift off...

 happy birthday evan boy.  a year ago i had no idea what it would be like to love you.  now i don't know what it would be like not to.

Marvelous looking party to celebrate your sweet boy. Glad he liked the cake and had a happy birthday.

What a cute idea! It makes me wish we had thrown B a real party... too late now I guess.

Megan!!! Please help me out!! Which type of balloon and which type of pen did you use? I have tried 4 different markers and they all smudge when I deflate the balloons. :-(
