The Rainbow Party

Ingrid was so excited it was finally the day of her party!  We had some friends and family over and it was a madhouse.  Unfortunately we were stuck inside because it was raining, but in our new house it's not that big of a deal because we have space!  Last year I kept fretting it would rain because our house was teeny and there wouldn't have been enough room for everyone.  I love our house.

Ingrid put her party duds on and was ready to go. 

We hung up rainbow garlands, rainbow lanterns, rainbow balloons.  We had rainbow striped party hats and favor bags, lots of food and drinks, and everyone had fun chatting and playing. 

THE CAKE!!  It was amazing.  Our friend's mom made it, she did an amazing job.  White cake with buttercream frosting, six layers of yumminess.  Totally made the whole party.  Ingrid was begging to eat cake, she even got her own fork out and dug in before we could stop her!  That's my girl!

We are just so lucky to be back in Milwaukee and have such great friends and family.  They were awesome and got Ingrid tons of paints, markers, stickers and paper--she is going to be so entertained! 

Another birthday done.  Phew.  These things are exhausting.
