Birthday Party!

2 Apr

We had a big fifth birthday bash that was a blast! I stumbled across Great Play and it was the perfect place for a rainy March Saturday to burn some serious five-year old energy.

Miss H was really excited to have her classmates at the party. And, they were all excited to play the games.

And were all red-cheeked and sweaty.

They danced and raced and jumped and threw balls and played tons of games while all the parents caught up with each other.

And, in the end, they got medals and had the full ceremony with music and flags.

We wrapped everything up with singing and cake!

Everyone had a great time and I realized that I am a terrible party photographer!

Family arrived on Saturday and Miss H is thrilled to hang around her cousins (aunt and uncle too but the cousins are the greatest!). They arrived in the evening on Saturday and the Miss H instantly had two new best friends.

We headed to the zoo on Sunday morning. It was a little chilly but the animals were out and about.

Then we saw the big cat. He just paced around and around.

Miss H immediately spotted the carousel and everyone got a cool ride.

We were on a mission to find the pandas. Luckily, we were successful.

We even got the kids to pose for a fun picture.

The brothers had to catch a little break whenever they could.

03232014-8The greatest way to get around is Miss H’s new scooter.

The flamingos might have been Miss H’s favorite part.

After seeing lots of animals, we headed for a late lunch and then off to see more sites.
