Dave has decided to start taking the kids' birthdays off if they fall on a weekday. So we spent Anna's birthday together as a family and had a blast! Anna is such a joy! She is so full of life and so happy and gets along with everyone. She was so very excited to turn five and have her birthday!
She picked going to a bounce house and it was great fun (as you can see below).
Eva wasn't sure what all the activity was about, but had fun eating and getting lots of snuggle time with Dave and I.
It continues to amaze me how social Anna is. Anytime we are in a place where other kids are she immediately makes friends. This day was no different as you can see she had two friends and her two brothers following her everywhere she went.
It was a real blessing watching her run around having so much fun on her special day!
The boys had fun being buddies and did almost everything together.
Collin asked me to play with him. He's finally in a huge Mommy phase and is so in love with me right now which is a big deal b/c he has been obsessed with his Dad for several years now. He even tells me that he's going to marry me. :) I couldn't resist his sweet request, so I went on all the inflatables with him and we had a bunch of fun together.
Family shot on the way out after hours of fun and surprise visit from Grandpa with a new outfit for the birthday girl.
We went to a restaurant after that was only about 3 minutes away, but Collin crashed hard! Dave carried him in and he was still asleep so we put him on the booth and he got a good nap in. Eva was sleeping too, so we had a fun time enjoying our two big kids for a bit.
Anna commented on the flowers on the table and how pretty they were when we came in. The hostess overheard us talking about it being her birthday so she went and put together some flowers for Anna to have. She loved that!
For dessert we got a monster cookie and they put five scoops of ice cream and five candles for our birthday girl.
She was a fan! (Collin was too, pretty good deal getting woken up just in time for dessert)
When we got home it was present time. I found lots of little gifts for Anna so I decided to be sneaky and wrapped them all and then put them inside of a box and wrapped it so she thought she just had one present. She was so tickled when she saw inside!
So happy with her Peter Pan.....
....and her Peter Pan charm bracelet.
The kids had a great time playing with the new Peter Pan toys....
....and the girls played together with her new princess little people.
She was so excited to go to bed with her new stuffed animals and new matching jammies for her baby.
We love out sweet five year old cupcake so very much!!!
