Let me tell you, birthday parties are fun.

They’re especially fun when you are 4 years old. I think it is such a wonderful age.

I remember babysitting kids and my favorite age was the 3-4 year olds. They can talk, have big personalities, and still have an air of innocence.

So, when my cute little Carmen wanted a birthday party, she started dreaming months ago.

Most of her friends were into FROZEN and so for awhile that’s what she wanted too.

Then it changed to a dog party, a cheetah party and all kinds of crazy ideas.

Then it came to us… a circus party!


Carmen loves doing “acrobatic tricks” so it was perfect…



She had quite the party, and we had so much fun planning it!

IMG_6623My parents and Michael’s parents came into town. They made it extra fun!



Nora in her cute clown nose… Michael dressed up like a clown and even juggled for the kids.  What a cool dad!


He was really good, and even painted his face!!


Funniest thing, is that his parents showed up DRESSED LIKE CLOWNS!! haha.. We had NO idea, and it was hilarious. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!Carmen2


Sweet Nora was a great sport despite Carmen getting A LOT of attention.


Tons of friends, fun and smiles…


Special thanks to our awesome neighbor for providing the bounce water fun!!



We love you sweet Carmen…
