Pool Party!

Okay so it happened our little girl turned 5. On her actual birthday she wore her birthday attire, we celebrated with her picking out a cupcake from our favorite cupcake place and her lunch choice was a lunchable (oh to be 5 again). She called that day "her fake birthday" because her party was on Saturday and it confused her, so to her, the day of the pool party was her "real birthday."
We had her pool party at the Logan Aquatic Center. Prior to the party I was concerned about 2 things, one being the weather (thunderstorms were predicted) and two, how busy it might be on a Saturday. Luckily all the dark clouds disappeared for the duration of the party and practically nobody besides our group was there. It was awesome! A special thank-you to ALL of our friends and family that traveled for the party. I couldn't have asked for anything better. As for Elise she had an amazing day and got a zillion presents, she continues to play with a new present each day. Enjoy many, many photos of our birthday girl and her pool party. Thanks again!

This was Elise's bday attire and her outdoor photo shoot (her idea)

This was her big present....the one she said that she had shopped for in her dreams (A 3 story Barbie Dreamhouse, with an elevator) This is her hugging the box with pure joy!

  1. So fun! Glad Karina was able to enjoy it. What an awesome five year old!

  2. What a fun time. I love that place. The kids looked so cut. I cannot believe Elise is 5!!

  3. Fun in the sun for sure! So glad that we were able to be there. I love that Elise girl and I can't believe she is 5! It's crazy town for sure. Anyway thanks for the fun and yummy cake. I like in mom comment that she said the kids looked so cut. I am sure she meant cute, but the idea of cut kids makes me smile. Ha!
