Perfect Picnic Party

I woke this morning to a blizzard of activity all because I had forgotten my phone was on silent mode and therefore it did not chime to wake me up. This would not have been such a big deal on a normal Sunday morning, which I normally reserve for lazy time and a late breakfast with my husband, but this particular day I had plans. So because of my silent phone I was an hour late picking Ms. Dancer and Ms. Eden up to go to a picnic birthday party for Ms. Sexy Pants.


MS. DANCER AND I

The lateness of our arrival aside it was a wonderful quiet time at the park and a perfect partially sunny day for her birthday. As a gift I brought one of the orchids that I have been growing in my greenhouse and I took pictures of the party with the intention of burning her a CD of the pictures. This was a friend/family party and I had such a great time hanging out with my friends and interacting with all the kids. It was really fun getting candid’s of everyone, something that I have not tried to do in the past. Some of my favourite moments were

There were two babies that were 11 months old born one day apart that were both so adorable I was almost ready to stash them in my very generously sized purse and sprint away James Bond style.


BABY NUMBER ONE - BOY AND SUPER ADORABLE


PRECIOUS LITTLE BABY GIRL - BASICALLY AN ANGEL FALLEN FROM HEAVEN

There was a family of redheads and these two sisters in particular, ages 5 and 10 were so gorgeous with their shocking red hair and crazy personalities.


THE ADORABLE REDHEAD SISTERS

Kids with cupcakes are just the CUTEST THINGS EVER!


SHE WAS TRYING TO FIT THE WHOLE THING IN HER MOUTH AT ONCE


SHE WAS SAVOURING HER CUPCAKE SLOWLY LIKE A PRO AND NOT WILLING TO WASTE A DROP

There was a little boy who exclaimed in worry to Ms. Sexy Pants
Boy – “What is that cut on your head.”
Ms. Sexy Pants – “What cut.”
Boy – “That cut there on your head.”
Ms. Sexy pants turns to her older niece and asked “Do I have a cut on my head?” her neice said no. So Ms. Sexy Pants leans closer and asks him to show her what cut. And the boy points to the line in the middle of her eyebrows.
Ms. Sexy Pants – “You mean this here?”
Boy – “Yes the cut!.”
Ms. Sexy Pants – “Sweety that is not a cut that is a wrinkle, you will understand once you get as old as me.”

When she relayed this story I laughed so hard because only kids could be that original or honest.


MS. SEXYPANTS TELLING THE STORY AND POINTING OUT HER 'CUT'

There were some kids playing with an open Frisbee which of course got stuck in one of the large trees. Where then one of the men threw a ball up to try to dislodge the open Frisbee. Where then Ms. Sexy Pants, the birthday girl herself managed to get the ball out with another closed Frisbee. And then the boys got the other open Frisbee out with my idea of throwing full water bottles, because at least THOSE would not get stuck. After a half hour they managed to get it down and all was right again in the park.


MS. SEXY PANTS HAS DEADLY AIM

Of course we had to take a group shot of everyone that was there at the end of the party. There were many more that had already come and gone but this was what was left at the end. With a party like this where people drop in and out it is impossible to get everyone who attended in one photo.

I do so love children - they are so honest and not at all afraid to point out "The cuts in our heads" or like you said, "mom, why is that lady so fat" in the grocery store line! or how about when you said "Hey, that man next to you looks like a girl" in the LA Airport with his motorcyle jacket and tatoos everywhere, (he had long hair). I had to think fast and say, "Well, when girls first wore pants, men used to think they looked like guys" Thank goodness, he liked that response and smiled.
