Elin attended her first Valentine’s day party on Saturday at Gymboree. We meet her Nana and Papa there and she really enjoyed showing off to them. The first half of the party was some organized activities and some free gym to music. Elin LOVED the music. She danced and danced! I really need to find her a dance class in the area that would take 2 year olds and under. So far I have not had much luck.
We had one mishap where she tripped and bit her tongue. Her tongue bled a little and there was about 2 minutes of tears, but she quickly recovered and was back out on the
dance floor gym mat in no time.
The second half of the party was in a different room where there was snack time and then a craft. The snack was water or juice and a valentine cookie. Elin does not like sweets and would not eat her cookie at all! The closest thing she will eat is animal crackers. She did like picking the sprinkles off the cookie.
After the snacks, they started their crafts. They colored paper hearts attached to sticks and then stuck the sticks into Styrofoam to make heart bouquets. I thought it was a cute and unique idea!
After the craft time, there was a little bit more open gym time and then we left. All in all, I think she had a blast. She was worn out and fell asleep a couple minutes after we pulled out of the parking lot.
