Carnival Party

We are home from California, well rested again and back to our normal routines. Mylee had a lot of fun at Nana & Papa Heffelfinger's. Thank you again for hosting Mylee's Carnival Birthday party. We had a lot of fun visiting with relatives and friends. Mylee also got to spend a lot of time with her Auntie Sissy and Uncle Will. It was great to meet Will's girlfriend Monique.

We arrived in San Francisco on Thursday, our flight was great and Mylee was a perfect angel. She actually fell asleep before we took off from Arizona and slept most of the flight. The line was long getting the rental car, but it gave us the perfect opportunity to feed Mylee before we headed into the valley. We arrived in Stockton around 1pm in the aftneroon. We visited with Papa and Uncle Will for a little while and was able to get all of our stuff unpacked. Nana came home from work around 4pm. Later in the evening Auntie Sissy arrived and we spent the evening getting caught up and hanging out.

On Friday, we continued to get ready for the party. Lots of running around and shopping that needed to get done. We had a relaxing Friday night and was able to get to bed early so we could get up and get everything prepared. Thank you Auntie Sissy for staying up late and finishing the clown cut-out. You did a fantastic job!!

Saturday was a little crazy. We probably should have completed some of the tasks on Friday. But we all pulled together and was able to get everything done before the guests started to arrive. It is fun to have a big bash, but I think next time we will have a little more low key party. This will allow for more visiting. I think we all felt we didn't get a chance to visit with all of our guests. It was a lot of fun though! And we hope everyone else had just as much fun!
