Belated Birthday Pictures

What a fun day this was! This was Mark and my first time throwing a party together since we've been married...we wanted Tessa's birthday to be a fun time for everyone who came. So, we ordered a big 'ol jumper for both the kiddos and the adults to enjoy! :) We got to break it in before anyone showed up (thanks for taking a nice long nap, Tessa!) The slide was a riot!!!!
Posted are a bunch of pictures of the day...unfortunately I didn't get enough pictures of all the wonderful people who were there (it's always tough to work both the camera and the video camera at the same time...thankfully, I got lots of video footage.)

The "Big 'Ol Jumper" (before all the kiddos got to it)

We pulled all our lawn furniture out from the back yard to the front yard so the parents could chill while watching their kids run around.

We set up a "decorate your own cupcake" table.
Here's the birthday girl with Grandma...she woke up from her nap with major bed-head. We threw a barrette in and went with a cool new 'do. :) My friend Rachel made Tessa a darling little person stool.
A couple of Tessa's cousins: Madelyn & Malachi
Mark & Tessa at the end of the slide...Tessa's not too sure about it.
Dave & Tia let us borrow their bubble machine...this didn't come out until later. The wind was a tad too strong, all the bubbles were going over the wall.Tessa's first cake!
Happy Birthday, Pumpkin! Here's an exhausted little girl.
Mark and I want to thank our neighbors for making the party so much fun. They all pulled out their bikes, cars, scooters, balls, toys for everyone to play with. What a blast! :)
We are blessed to have so many wonderful friends...thank you to everyone who was able to come by and celebrate Tessa with us.

Looks like everyone had a good time. I had one of the bouncers for my birthday party a couple years ago. They are great for kids of all ages:)

Hopefully Tessa is doing well with her recovery. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
