Ella was invited to a 4th Birthday party on Saturday. Her little friend from Kindy; Becky, had placed an invitation in Ella's 'school' bag and we were delighted to find it later one evening. To say Ella was excited is an understatement. For days, she talked about it. She smiled about it. We went shopping for Becky's present 10 days before the party....and not because I'm super organised, but because Ella was super keen. I liked watching her bask in the joy that parties bring. The lead up can be just as exciting as the actual day.
And as Saturday morning rolled around, Ella beamed with happiness that it was finally Becky's party day.
The party was lovely. And full of the simple delights that make a kid's party perfect.
And bubble catching....
And games of course.....
A morning of sweet friends having a lot of fun together. Enjoying life & celebrating it.
It was nice to sit back & absorb it all. I kind of like kid's parties :)
Oh to be a child again, and to be fully present in each moment, without a care in the world. To be consumed with pure happiness of celebrating your friend's 4th birthday and everything that means.
