Caroline's Butterfly Birthday!

Today was the perfect day for Caroline's second birthday party. There was barely any humidity, quite unusual for these parts, as Caroline's friends came for the morning to play games and eat cupcakes.

Don't be deceived by the small group of duck, duck, goosers. Once everyone arrived, Bobby kept a group of 17 kids at bay with his charming antics.
Butterflies and bugs were on the cupcake menu. Martha Stewart, of course, is to thank for the inspiration.

This was honestly one of the happiest days I've ever seen our daughter have. Friends playing outside, mommy and daddy close by, birthday songs, candles, and gifts truly lit up her face with joy.
And what a way to end the party but with Caroline's very own butterfly wings from her cousins!
