Cleveland Weekend Part 2, Party for the Princesses

So when I left off, I was beginning to tell you the entire reason what brought us to Cleveland in the first place. 

Meet Isabella…….

And Karina…..

These two precious little princesses caused quite an affair and certainly know how to throw a party.  Izzy and Karina are the daughters of Toly's two cousins and this week, they turned the big 1!!!  There party was a magnificent celebration to say the least. 

Close to one hundred family and friends came from all over to celebrate these two beautiful babies.  An entire Russian restaurant was cleared out for the event, which I must say, looked even more glamourous and exquisite than my wedding. 

Of course there was tons of food! 

A few drinks were had….

And we danced the night away into the early hours of the morning……

Totally normal for a one year old's birthday party right?

Here are some pictures from the night.  Please enjoy.

And to conclude this epic adventure, I give you the first (and probably last) vlogging experience from my graceful, poised, and extremely humorous husband.  This should give you a clear idea of just how much fun the night really was. 

Clearly, the best One Year Old Birthday party I have ever been to! 

Happy Birthday Isabella and Karina!  We love you!
