Here are some pictures. (I realized, again, yesterday that I'm horrible at taking pictures. I'd rather enjoy the event then take pictures of it. Is that horrible? Am I going to regret that later on? I don't know - it's just not something that I'm used to doing)
Alex got some great gifts, but I can't post most of the pictures. These are even pushing it!! (It was hard to get pictures of just Alex without all the other kids in there)
He enjoyed having everyone sing Happy Birthday to him, but wasn't sure what to do after that. Needless to say, the 2 1/2 to 3 year olds in the room took care of the candle for him!!
We had a great evening. I'm so glad we decided to do something small and low key. It kept my stress level way down.
In fact, here's the funny story. Our plan was to order pizza from our local pizza place in our small town. We love their pizza and it would be very easy for Jay to run over and pick it up. I called at about 3:45 to order the pizza to be ready by 6:30. The main guy answers the phone and proceeds to tell me that they are closed!!! What??!?!? Come to find out, they are always closed on Derby Day (today) and last year they were open on Oaks Day (Friday before) and they had horrible business. They decided, this year, to be open for lunch but to close for the evening. So, here I sat, about 3 hours before the party with no pizza!! I ended up calling Papa Johns in the town next door and they would deliver, so it ended up being fine. (even though they were late)
