4th of July ward breakfast

Brandon and I were asked to be in charge of our ward/neighborhood 4th of July breakfast. Sure, I love planning parties, but it's much different planning a little party versus one for the whole ward. And since we have never been to this traditional breakfast before, we didn't know what to expect. Needless to say, it turned out well and we think everyone had a good time. And that's what makes a party a success.

Unfortunately, I was too busy taking care of Blake and Evelyn during the breakfast while Brandon was cooking, so I didn't get a ton of pictures, but I did manage to snap a few before I ran home to get Blake. Michael was nice enough to spend the night so we could get up early to decorate.

These were the invitations I made up. I removed the details in case there are any stalkers out there :) 

Somewhere during the planning I had the vision of making a balloon arch that the kids could ride their bikes through during the bike parade. And since we were at Home Depot 6 times (no lie) in one week to fix sprinklers, I was able to figure out a cheap and reasonable way to pull it off. Brandon was totally on board and helped me figure out how to make it work. So if you ever need to make one, we've got all the stuff now. I have a feeling this won't be the last balloon arch we make. 

These are our awesome neighbors the Farnsworths. They love Evelyn and Blake loves their boys. 

These 2 were so good during the breakfast. 
 Blake loved, loved, loved the bike parade. He wanted so badly to ride on the rode with all the big kids, but he still had fun. He is getting so good on his little red trike.

Blake and his friend Mason kept each other entertained while us and his parents cleaned up. They are cute lil' friends. 
We decided to forego the parade after we were all done cleaning up. We went back and crashed. And didn't regret one minute of our 3 hour nap.
