My Baby is Five

My sweet baby girl turned 5 yesterday!  It so hard to believe that she is that old already!  She was very excited about her birthday and had literally been counting down the days for months. 

She asked on the eve of her birthday could she wake up in the middle of the night and open her presents.  Needless to say that was the first thing on her agenda when she woke up.  DSC_0112

Since it was her birthday, she was able to choose what we did.  She wanted a McGriddle from McDonalds.  She wanted to go inside to eat and so we did. DSC_0117 She enjoyed playing on the indoor play structure.  We left McDonalds and went to Jumping Beans.  DSC_0123DSC_0139DSC_0144She had so much fun jumping and climbing.  We had cheese pizza for lunch at Jumping Beans.  DSC_0146Next she wanted to come home and help make her cake while the two younger ones napped.  While the cake was baking, we went outside to put together her new climbing wall.  DSC_0201DSC_0216

For dinner, she chose to go to Andy’s and then we came home and sung Happy Birthday and she blew out her candles which in her book signifies turning 5.  Before she blew out her candles, she was still 4.  DSC_0155DSC_0159DSC_0162DSC_0187After cake we played her new game Zingo.

I love my little (big) girl!  I am grateful to get to be her Mommy!

She is now counting down the days until her birthday party which is this upcoming Saturday.
