we did things we don't normally get to do. played with the hose for MUCH longer than is usually allowed. licked the beater AND the spatula used to make frosting.
and had a few fabulous friends over.
now this is not the blog you will visit where each party has coordinated everything and there are beautiful banners and matching party favors. not this girl. not this time. after the night leading up to this celebration day, i felt lucky to be wearing mascara. but it was such a special day. phone calls to wish a happy birthday and friends stopping by with gifts. it truly was a day of celebrating.
we had a rip-roaring good time.
a couple of people reminded me yesterday not to mourn the end of these short toddler years, but instead to celebrate the awesome-ness of my kid. and he is totally awesome. a gentle, inquisitive, articulate, creative and loving 5 year old.
thanks for partying with us.
