Wordless Wednesday: Kaia's Rainbow Birthday Celebration!

This little princess is now officially five and, in her words, she feels "so grown up!"  I have another post planned that's all about her, but I thought I should record her birthday celebration today.  Her actual birthday (April 1st) was on a Sunday, so we celebrated on Saturday, March 31...pretty much all day long!  She wanted a Rainbow Birthday with a Monkey Pinata, so we did our best to oblige.  At the end of the day, I asked her how her birthday had been and she said, "Wonderful!"  Yay!!  So, here are some snapshots from our festivities:

Balloon Garland.  I think her draw dropped when she saw this, lol!

She knew there were balloons, but there were a lot more when she woke up in the morning than when she went to bed!

Fizzing Rainbow Paint!

Watching a lizard eat a fly!



Obstacle Course Part 1!

Obstacle Course Part 2!

Obstacle Course Parts 3 & 4!  We left the obstacle course up, and the kids have been playing on it all week, too!

Piñata!







Cake!!

Doesn't she just look happy!!  Notice "Kaia" on the cake too!

Yes, we had our family dinner at Chuck E. Cheese.

She was pretty much in Heaven.

Happy 5th Birthday, Kaia!!  We love you!!
