the Big Top party!

Sydney had her first real birthday party, and it was a dream come true (mostly for me…nothing’s more fun than a carnival!). I’m thinking this needs to be an annual summer bash. :)

My THREE year old!

STEP RIGHT UP! We made it a family affair, so we had lots of helpful hands running the booths.

When the kids arrived, they picked up a sack to fill with tickets and prizes. Each ticket = 1 prize.

We let the kids running the booths decide how to hand out the tickets…I think this one produced the most, so it was a popular one. :)

The fishing pond was the favorite amongst the toddlers. I don’t think they cared about the rules or the tickets. By the end, half of them ended up swimming (instigated by a certain somebody….who ended up in her Birthday Suit by the end of the day).

The prize table! My sister, Malinda, made all the adorable banners. Her crafty talents are endless!
