A few party pictures

My neighbor Karen took a few pictures from the party that turned out so well I just had to post them.

I love this picture of Audrey listening to everyone singing "Happy Birthday"

And for once, a picture of Audrey with yours truly. You would think that I don't exist given that I rarely end up in any pictures ... but I'm too busy taking the photos!

One of my favorite memories of this party? After it was over, I took Audrey to the bathroom and while I was waiting for her to wash her hands she said, "Mommy, I wish Carter was here." (We had left him home with a babysitter.) It just melted my heart.

On Audrey's "real" birthday (Sunday), we took her over near my parents' house to ride the Perkasie Carousel. Rides are only 35 cents each (!) and last for about 5 minutes! Although you better hold on tight because this carousel goes FAST!

After the carousel ride, we went with Mom-Mom & Pop-Pop to Friendly's (one of Audrey's favorites) for dinner and ice cream. The wait staff came to our table to sing "Happy Birthday" and after they left, Audrey asked with amazement: "How did they know it was my birthday??" :)

I missed that one. Chantel and I love the Perkasie Carousel. Ralph doesn't enjoy the ride, so he watches and we wave to him. Sorry I missed this post before! It was cute. I caught it tonight when I was going back through them. It must have been due to Ralph celebrating his b-day with family, too,and all the issues- funeral and start of school of this past week.
