Back in the beginning of July, my mom hosted a big party at the cottage. The party was to celebrate three things: my nephew Ashe’s 3rd birthday, Khloë’s 7 month milestone, and my brother Mark’s visit from Newfoundland.
Jordan, Khloë, and I spent a couple extra days before the party hanging out at the cottage. We slept in the guest cottage–the first time I’d slept in there in about five years!–and enjoyed the beautiful weather and laid-back atmosphere. The party came about three weeks after Khloë’s heart-wrenching diagnosis, so it was wonderful to get away for a mini-vacation.
All our friends and family came out on July 5th to celebrate with us! There was plenty of great food and of course lots of baked goodies courtesy of me. 😉 I even made Khloë a special chocolate pudding, which I think she enjoyed.
Keesje and I used last year’s “Thomas the Tank Engine” decorations and added in some Disney Princess bits n’ pieces for a girly touch! There were lots of outdoor toys for the kids, including a water table. Plus swimming and paddle-boating!
What a great party! I am so happy that everyone had a great time. Let’s do it again next summer!
