The party was a lot of fun and Grace was SO excited that it was her special day. We told her we were celebrating the day she was born and how happy we are that that she is growing up to be such a wonderful little girl.
After running, jumping, and bouncing for 80 minutes in the "arena" the children entered this party room for pizza, cupcakes, and presents!
The birthday girl got to sit in this princess chair to open the wonderful gifts from her friends. She got SO much! More than any 5-year old needs. So we are going to play with some things right away and put some others away to rediscover over the next few weeks.
I know my big kid had a fantastic time at her party. She thanked me and said she loves me...that is the best present I could have received today! I was proud of her for being calm and gracious on a day the can be overwhelming for a 5-year old. And, I love how she didn't want the party to end so we stayed to play outside with Dawson and Mayna for a little while after.
It has been a real pleasure to watch our babies grow into little girls. I treasure each one of these beauties - and their super cool moms, too!
