Five!!!

6.25.2013

On June 13th, this gorgeous and lovely wee lady turned five!!!






Herman and I took the day off and we let her stay home from preschool so that an entire day of celebrating could be had. 

Her favorite color is "all the colors of the rainbow" so we made this geometric rainbow shapes for decorations...


...and had a breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes for her (per her request) and strawberry pancakes for us...

...then it was present opening time... 






























...and a full day of play before the family came over for dinner, chocolate cake (naturally), and more presents.

We also decided that 5 is one of the bigger birthday milestone and definitely warranted a big party with all her school and non-school friends...

So this past Sunday we set up in the park with food and cupcakes and a few giant balloons. There's a great water feature at this park, which all the kids loved. It was pretty much the perfect, laid back party. Because really, all she wanted to do was play with her friends. 



Since we kept the party itself pretty simple, I put a lot of my energy into the goodie bags. And I'm so happy with the end result...

Oh, Emilia is so beautiful!! I love all of her different expressions. Such a happy girl.

I enjoyed your London pictures,too, and the "off-beat" things you did while savoring London. So sweet to see that Emilia is still a Beatles fan.
