A Dinner Club To Remember

Well it's official...Little Cute turns one today! There are lots of fun things planned for her today, but the celebration actually started this past weekend. 

Carrie Beth and I have a very special group of close friends. Five years ago our little group met for a random last minute dinner one Sunday in December. Something about the spontaneity of it and the feel good way it wrapped up our weekend just felt right. We had so much fun that we decided from that point on to do a dinner together one Sunday a month. Now even as families have grown, lives have gotten busier, and some have moved out of state, we still manage to meet our one Sunday a month. I love it! 

October fell on our month to host and I knew I wanted to do a little something different to celebrate Little Cute's birthday with our Sunday Dinner Club. A new little bounce house place opened up about a minute from our home. It is super small and after talking with the owners about what I wanted to do, I decided to host our rotation there instead of my house. 

Let me tell you. Best. Decision. Ever. 

The kids had a blast. The adults had a blast. Little Cute had a blast! 

And my house...just as clean as I left it. ;) 

No, seriously that is something to be excited about. Children are starting to out number adults in our dinner club, and nothing will tear up your house faster than a pack of toddlers on a cupcake sugar high. 

Aside from the location change and a few fun touches here and there to acknowledge Little Cute's birthday, we kept the dinner club pretty low key. 

Little Cute and I wore our coordinating shirts that Carrie Beth and I worked on earlier in the week. 

Little Cute tested out each bounce house and had a blast running around with everyone. She was all smiles the whole night and was fearless in trying everything. I might have a second dare devil on my hands. Lord help me.

The older kids were so excited to find that one of the bounce houses also had a huge zip line built into it. It was definitely a hit! Word has it a husband or two might have also tried it out even though they exceeded the suggested weight limit. 

The G Family made the trek all the way from South Carolina, and we were all so excited! They literally just had their new baby a few weeks before, but that didn't stop them. Baby B couldn't miss his first dinner club! He is adorable, and we all loved snuggling on him. I'm already counting down the days until next month when I get to cuddle him again. 

Dessert time rolled around and we sang Happy Birthday to Little Cute. She didn't know what to think of it at first, but it didn't take her long to clue in to the deliciousness that is a cupcake.

"Holy cow, where has this been my whole life?!?"

That cupcake didn't stand a chance.

This picture makes me so happy! I asked the owner to take a picture of the whole dinner club. I don't think we have ever taken one of the whole group before. I love that everyone is in it!

The one special touch I did, other than our matching shirts, was to make these fun favors for the kids. 

I was sad to know the night ended so fast, but love that we get to do it all over again in a month. 

And as for this little cutie...just don't make the next year fly as fast okay? 

Now we are off to do some more celebrating! Have a great weekend everyone!!!
