Here's what the backyard looked like before the party (when the camera still functioned):
We really had a wonderful time! And the children were incredibly respectful when I asked them not to climb on the weeping cherry and to stay on the paths. The garden survived quite well with the exception of a hosta that, truth be told, was crowding the path anyway and needed to be moved.
Luna is sniffing around for dropped pizza.
All ready for the next party!
