We had Ella's birthday party the Saturday after her birthday. She wanted a jumping party with Backyardigans theme, so that is what she got!
Mom and Glenn; Erin, Josh and Cameron; and Teresa and Carmen all came in for the weekend to celebrate. Ella had all her friends there and had so much fun.

Could this birthday girl be any cuter??

Once it was time for them to start jumping, Ella just ran around and had fun with all her buds for more than an hour without so much as a break. It was just our group so they had the place to themselves and were free to run wild :).
They ran, jumped, played, tons of yelling and laughing, and just had a blast - I love watching her have so much fun. It's also pretty noteworthy that she's at the age where her friends are more fun than her good old mommy (gasp!!).

Cameron and the girls - he was quite the ladies man. Ella had been really excited for all her friends to meet him and , and at one point Gillian said "Ella, your baby is cute!"
Look at this handsome little man!

Ella was funny with her cake - she took 4 blows to get all her candles out, and did them one at a time

Mom's birthday is the 13th, so Erin brought another cake and we gave Mom her birthday gifts.
Very big hug for Grammy!
