{15feb2011: reunion party part 1}

(446 pictures is a lot of pictures to go through, so we're breaking up Darwin's birthday party/family reunion into parts.)
We were all really excited about the second annual family reunion birthday, so we loaded up the car and headed to the park.

Once we got there I set up the pupcakes (I used the same recipe as last year but made them into cupcakes rather than a sheet cake) and we waited for our guests to arrive.

Remi and his bff (and Darwin's bf for a day) Memphis were the first to arrive.  Darwin greeted them like a diva... barking and barking and barking.  It was her party and she could bark if she wanted to. 
Then brothers and sisters started arriving.

Porky isn't fixed and was fixated on Darwin all day long.  You can see from Darwin's face she wasn't too into the incestuous attention from her brother.
Kona and his sister Olive (an 8 month old blue Kristie helped rehome) showed up.
Olive was really excited to see Boo again.
Bella and her little older brother Jefferson showed up.
We were waiting for Sydney and her older niece London (a blue Dane also), but all the dogs were getting crazy barking and wanting to play so we quickly handed out the pupcakes (it was too chaotic to even get pictures) and headed into the park!

Part two to come!


  1. Awesome pics! Looks like a good time for all....

  3. Darwin thinks those pupcakes look delicious! It must be so fun to have "family reunions"!

  4. What a totally awesome party! The snacks look delicious and you are so lucky to still have your fur family around! Momma would love to meet mine but we don't know where they are. I wonder if I could pass as your runty cousin from the south and sneak into one of your parties?

    By the way, I will be over your way on the 26th and 27th and am hoping to set up a play date with Remi as long as my tooth is healed by then...I think it should be but who knows. Anyway, would love to see you if possible.
