rowan's 4th birthday rainbow bash.

i am positive this was rowan's favorite birthday ever - all with her favorite things: cake, friends, cake, and presents. everything turned out nearly perfect and i am currently trying to not make eye contact with the mess we ignored last night as we collapsed on the couch.
aside from a few small glitches like loosing our face painter at the last minute and not having some of the supplies i needed, it was a great bash! only one of rowan's friends came from school - i am still trying to decide if this annoys me or i don't care because there were already a lot of other kids here (just being honest...) i mean only one person rsvp'd no...is rsvp'ing a lost manner? luckily it was one of the two gals she was really hoping would come and was still over the moon that lots of her other friends she has had since she was a baby were there.
i diy'd every last detail with a little help from my neighbor and her cricut. i am so proud of the decorations i think we might leave some up for a little bit...i mean, her real bday isn't till monday so it is ok till at least then right? i won't go into a ton of detail about everything - but i will answer any questions in the comments for sure! enjoy!
she hasn't put those new lalaloopsy dolls down since last night - she is in love! the photos of guests, presents, and all other party going ons are all being held hostage on my dad's camera but i will add them when i get them. 
by the end of the day i had come to terms with the fact that a photobooth is wasted effort on preschoolers - but tim did an awesome job constructing the frame and i am in love with the end result and the fact that cheap streamers made it awesome! here are a few photos we were able to snag before the toddlers took it over. 
this summer we're going to shorten the frame and turn it into a bike wash - can't wait!
