Weekend Recap // Birthday Parties and Great Frogs Fun

Monday, September 22, 2014


How was everyone's weekend? Ours was packed with lots of birthday fun, ranging from a Russian doll-themed children's birthday party to a grown-up party at a vineyard. We celebrated three birthdays this weekend and I have to just say, I love going to birthday parties. The cake, the decorations, and the socializing are exactly the kinds of things I want to do during the weekend.

Our first birthday party was held by Steve's friend and coworker, Liisa (and her family) for her younger daughter's 2nd birthday. Now, do you guys remember how ahhhmazing Liisa's first daughter's birthday party was just a few months back? Well, I was wondering how Liisa was going to live up to that last one, and she did not disappoint. Check out the photos below to see what I'm talking about. I mean, who thinks of a Russian doll themed birthday party? It's so original and so colorful and perfect for a little girl's birthday.

And as if that wasn't enough for us on Saturday, we headed to Great Frogs Vineyards to celebrate another friend's birthday. The weather could not have been more perfect if it had tried and it was the perfect place to have your toddler (or kid of any age) run around while you enjoy food and wine with friends. I couldn't help myself but to take some pics of Cora while she had some fun exploring the grapes.

To finish our weekend full of birthday fun, we celebrated Steve's mom's birthday on Sunday and ended it with the most amazing chocolate cake from The Fresh Market.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

  1. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures - they are (I think) the only ones we have! We loved having you over and I now have to figure out what to do for the next 10 months until the next birthday party...I should send you a picture of the cake post-feeding frenzy. We hesitated to cut into her pretty face but by Sunday night she was a goner. Liisa

  2. I wanted to celebrate my kid's birthday party at home. For this occasion i wanted a special wine which i ordered from great frogs. The site for ordering was not loading properly so i used NordVPN 3 Year Plan . After connecting to the server in VPN , the site worked fine and i was able to place wine order for the birthday celebration.
