It is always a sigh of relief once the festivities are over. As a kid, the letdown was harsh, but as an adult, it comes as a huge relief. The best part though it that Darsie had a fantastic birthday. Thank you to everyone to who left a message in response to her birthday post/story.
She had a great party full of family, hot dogs, hamburgers, chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting, pin the tail on the donkey, a pinata, and as many juice boxes as a girl could drink. She played in the dirt, twirled in her "party dress" (her term, not mine, although I did make the skirt and appliqué the t-shirt).
The margaritas and wine kept the adults happy.
All was well. It was a great day.
