Birthday #1, the kids party

Yesterday we celebrated S's 5th birthday by taking her and some friends to an apple orchard. The party was originally supposed to be on Saturday, but due the rainy weather we moved it to Sunday and what a beautiful day it was! The sun was shining in a gorgeous blue sky and the temperature was perfect, too. We had a nice little tent with picnic tables to set up shop.

After the kids arrived they went to the moonbounce for lots of jumping and to get out some of their energy.

Then we took our own private hay ride to a secluded part of the orchard to pick apples. The orchard worker explained how to properly pick apples to all the children.

After we got back we were all hungry for cake, cider, and cider donuts. Talk about a sugar rush!!
S then enjoyed opening all her great presents.

Then we went to the hedge maze. I think everyone found the middle except for me. Hedge mazes are quite frustrating. You really think you know where you're going and where you've been, but it is very disorienting walking among 8 feet tall bushes.

To wrap things up the kids went crawling through a tunnel maze, got a red balloon, and got to visit the farm animals.
It was a great day and according to Sydney it was her best birthday party ever!!
