Baby Belle turns 2!

On Saturday, my niece Isabelle and about a half dozen of her little friends (and their sweet parents) headed to the Little Gym for her birthday party.  They set up the equipment and activities according to the age of the group.  After and hour or so playing in the gym, the group heads to the adjacent room for pizza and cake.  It was adorable.

Here's Belle dunkin' baskets with Auntie Linds.

This flip looked like to much fun!  She loved it and after said "Again!"


This part cracked me up.  The rest of the little kids are in the middle of the parachute, but there's our Belle, supervising from the outside.  She did eventually get on board and liked being swirled around inside.

Here she and a friend are swinging on the pole.  At first she didn't love the idea, but then saw her friend go for it and caught on quickly.  You can also see some of the other equipment in the room and the chairs and observation area outside for the parents and others not in the gym portion.

And there she is, running through the group as the parents lifted the parachute up.  Notice how the others are kind of just sitting and enjoying the tent-like idea while our little one zooms back and forth?  Yea, she gets that too-much energy from both sides of the family!

A good time was had by all and I bet a few parents went 
home and took a nap while the kids did too.
