On Tuesday morning, our sweet Ashby turned EIGHT!!
This year, we decided to make it a driveway donut birthday party. From 9 to 10, friends and family could stop by, grab breakfast to go for their whole crew and either get out and say hi or stay in their car. I honestly thought it worked out so well!! Many friends drove by, waived and said hi (grabbing their to-go breakfast) while others got out to say hello and eat a quick bite on the driveway. Ashby said it was her favorite birthday!
Here’s a little recap of our morning…
We had gifts ready for our birthday girl when she came downstairs! This inflatable palm tree can be connected to the water hose for outdoor fun!
Another FANTASTIC birthday sign by my friend Amy!! How cute is this?!
Awwww! Bedhead and a birthday sign!! Since the party was out front, we were trying to jazz things up…also, we currently have a porta potty and dumpster in our yard, so this helped 😉 .
Our big 8 year old dressed and ready for gifts!
This one here was her very favorite…
…Snoopy Sno-cone Machine! Um, hello 1989!! Who else had one of these growing up?! I did, I did!! All four kids were excited about this gift!
We were now ready to head out and wait for friends and family!
The afternoon before, we pre-packaged donuts for people to take with them.
We had donuts to go, donuts to enjoy if you stayed, chocolate milk, party hats and then I made a savory breakfast and had coffee in the kitchen for adults too.
It was pretty windy, so I lost several of my fun balloons (so sad!), but we were outside and READY!
Love these girls so much!!
In one short hour, we had so many friends and family come by to celebrate!
There were flamingos on his shirt…and I was totally diggin’ it!
My dad took this pic. She was a great helper!!!
Ashby has the sweetest friends!
Our adorable friend Kate came to help Kensington too that I could say hi and help pass out breakfast bags to people in their cars.
Some kids were in pajamas, most were barefoot, it was just so CASUAL AND FUN!
I love me some Aunt Catherine!
And Mark too 🙂 .
The best friends!
The Slaughters arrival included some sort of chalk gun thing going off. It was so much fun!
First a silly picture…
…then a sweet one 🙂 .
Rosie was the star of the party 🙂 .
This pic cracks me up. Isaiah kept carrying the palm tree around. Ha!
It was a sweet birthday for a sweet girl.
