happy 2nd birthday, claire bear!!

saturday after the mabster's birthday party, we geared up for another one in honor of claire bear's 2nd birthday. the theme: DORA!! it was intended to be a pool party at the maloney's home, but the rain forced everyone in during the first hour. in all honesty, it worked out really well considering the kiddos all got to play together while eating pizza. soon we all sang happy birthday to claire bear as we watched her blow out her candle on her super cute cake. here are some pics...after everyone finished eating birthday cake, a pleasant visitor made a surprise visit for the kids. whattayaknow, it was gigantic-headed dora herself!! the girls absolutely loved seeing her while the adults laughed as comments like, "mommy, why does dora smell like beer?" and "why is dora's belly bigger than santa's?" it was hysterical. here are some pics...shortly after, the rain had stopped and everyone decided to hang out outside. the munchkins put on their bathing suits and we all took a refreshing dip in the pool. all in all, it was a great birthday party for a sweet special girl. happy birthday, claire bear. we love you!
