**update: somehow i got my timing mixed up... i broke my elbow the weekend before bella's actual birthday and then had surgery on the day of her birth**
our sweet bella bean turned one on february 26th... the following weekend, as many of you know, i broke my elbow (no, i wasn't doing anything super exciting or dangerous~ just going on a family bike ride w/ my 2 favorite people~ jason & bella : ) anyways, needless to say life has been a bit full and crazy and i have taken longer than planned to post...
the party was wonderful... we had a fabulous time! one very special treat was marni's presence~ since marni had come to help us b/c of my arm she was able to be here for the party! initially we had thought she was going to miss it.
marni, bella and i had lots of fun shopping for all the birthday decorations and goodie bags. we had a "castle style" bounce house, along with bubbles, sidewalk chalk, face painting compliments of marni, cupcakes and more. bella thoroughly enjoyed the bounce house and her "smash cake"...
