Hot Air Balloon Birthday Cake!
After cake, Lillian shared party favor bags with each family. We loaded them with popcorn and lots of fun glow in the dark stuff. Once everyone started glowing, we watched the hot air balloon glow. They have all of the balloons on the field and they fire them up all at the same time. It is really beautiful. Starr, Emma and our family were the only ones to stay until the bitter end. The grand finale was a firework show. It was great and the kids got to stay up until 10pm. It was a great birthday party. Lillian had lots of fun and so did we.
The year she was born, we saw the hot air balloons on Friday and Saturday. On Monday I was induced and Tuesday morning Lillian was born. So, the hot air balloons will be forever connected with Lillian's birthday. It is a sweet memory to me and I am secretly hoping she will have more hot air balloon parties.
