This past month we have had some fun family adventures. Eisley loved the zoo, it was funny to hear her "meow" for most of the animals, the one animal sound she got right was growling like a bear. It's her new favorite. We also went to a pumpkin patch, rode on a hay ride, painted pumpkins at an apple festival, and enjoyed some perfect fall weather in Portland. Eisley picked out her favorite pumpkin by licking it :)

|The food table|
|3 generations of pretty ladies!|
The party took place in my parents sun room and back yard, so we concentrated the decorations there. We made all the pom-poms and tassel garland, we re-used the paper lanterns from past parties. We also re-used the wood cake stands from my baby shower last year. The hot air balloon utensil holder was re-used from another baby shower we hosted the day before. I had all the pictures of Eisley from mine and Brian's instragrams printed, I also had a ton from the blog and some that have never been posted anywhere printed. I forgot to take a picture of the sweet chalkboard art I did, but it told everyone to take home their favorite picture or two. It was interesting to see which ones people choose to bring home.
I had a little Time Capsule table set up and invited the guests to fill out their predictions on Eisley, our family, and the world in 2030 when Eisley will be 18 years old. It was so fun to read them all, and it will be so great to have Eisley read them when she is 18-i'm sure we will have a good laugh! We will also see if everyone's thoughts on a zombie apocalypse are true or not.
The food menu included-salad and fruit on a stick which we stuck in pumpkins--how fun. "Say" Mac and Cheese. Lots of mini sandwiches, PB&J sausage on rye, and turkey and Swiss on pumpernickel. My mom also made some stuffed mushrooms which I heard were great! We had Peggy's mint tea and a strawberry lemon-aid for drinks.
I set up a little kids table with some camera coloring pages, bubbles and some little cameras that had pictures inside. They all seemed to enjoy it.
Eisley got so many thoughtful and amazing gifts, from musical instruments, fun books, hand made hats, even tickets to the aquarium!
Eisley eating her cake was so funny! She got so shy with everyone looking at her and singing to her that she just buried her face in the cake, she would only look up if Brian or I were by her side telling her everything was ok...so cute!
