Ida's Rapunzel Bday

With the onset of summer, Sofie's birth, and everyday life - I've missed blogging about some key events that have happened in between!  One of those events was Miss Ida Mae's 2nd birthday.  I assumed that I'd get to decide and plan her parties for the first 2 years of her life at least, but ever since Amara had a Cinderella party in January, Ida was planning a Rapunzel party.  So Rapunzel it was!  Of course Sofie's arrival interrupted things and postponed her party.  But Mike came to the rescue and assembled her cake - shaped the tower and all - I just added frosting!  He decorated the house and really pulled it together for her! (My dad created the sun stencil for all the bunting in the background above.) I didn't even really take pictures- Dad Church did.  I pretty much sat around and held Sofie!

The kiddos enjoying the bubbles.

A few Rapunzels showed up at the party.

Our crazy girl!

And her crazy friend and cousin!

Sofie attended her first birthday party at just a few days old.
