The birthday celebrations started the weekend before her birthday with our good friends, the Hamminghs. It included a trip to the pumpkin patch. It was a beautiful day and we all had a great time.
Kalina enjoyed helping me make her birthday cakes – one for home and one for her party. She carefully studied the making baking books we have before deciding on just the right cakes. We had fun going to the store to pick cake and party decorations. Kalina still does not really like cake but she thinks a little frosting is ok, some decorations are ok, and vanilla ice cream to go with the cake is the best!
We had fun decorating the house so Kalina would awake to streamers and decorations. She took individual bags of popcorn to school to share with her friends on her birthday. We went to Red Robin for dinner, the birthday girl’s request.
The Saturday after her birthday, we had Kalina’s birthday party with friends from LPA and school. She decided to have her party at a local toy store, Snapdoodle. The girls got to so some cool crafts and we had cake and ice cream. A fun time was had by all. Jadon was a super helpful assistant.
