Being Two is all about being messy and having fun! So, Avi's second birthday party was themed around that idea: let's get messy! We bought 100 pounds of white flour (for $78!) and filled two kiddy pools and let the kids explore!
Avi is taking a break to munch. If she looks a little pale, it's because she has flour all over her face!

Back row: Mimi, Paula, Ashley, Steph R. Front row: Amie, Polly, Avi, and Maren.
We had to use a blower to get all the extra flour out from all the hair and clothes, otherwise the flour mixed with water during bath-time would turn into goppy-gooey-sticky trouble!
As you can see in this picture, there was a LOT of white flour in the air!
Heather, Halle, Avi. Watermelon was a big hit at this party!
Maren got too close to the kids playing in the pools and got flour all over her face. Oh, well!
The older kids would run around and watch the flour fall, no fly, off of them!
Kit enjoyed watching the kids play in the flour pools.
Gigi Louise and Dan.
The top of Nicolas's head - covered with flour, of course!
Aveah, Maren, and Tessa getting blown by the blower. Pacha and Millie in the background watching.
Rebecca, Maren, Aveah, and Mimi.
Avi ate about half the frosting and then was done with her cupcake. She's not used to that much sugar!
Millie, Avi, Halle.
Mimi dared get in the flour pool at one point!
Frank gave Avi beautiful flowers!
Finally, near the end of the party, Avi felt comfortable hanging out and playing in the pool. At first, she was more tentative.
Avi got lots of wondeful presents from her family and friends. This is one present: a hand-knit hat and skirt by her neighbor Kit (she above picture).
