shadd & z's birthday party


We celebrated Shadd's 9th birthday and Z's 3rd birthday together with our families. It was a minute to win it party with some luigi action as well! Thankfully it was beautiful outside so we could utilitze all the downstairs space. It did sprinkle a few times which made a fire kind of out of the question. 









My favorite part was watching everyone play the games. Even the big kids got involved. They all did awesome!
