Our day started out very early...7:10am. For a night owl like myself, this was very painful!
At our house, if it's your birthday you get to pick out whatever cereal you want. Emily chose the very healthy Cookie Crisp. ;0)
Opening a present before Phillip went to work.
This was her big present. A Cinderella play set, complete with a pumpkin carriage.
Today was also the day that I introduced the girls and Benjamin to the greatest show ever....The Price is Right! Phillip isn't a fan but we won't hold it against him. ;0)
Next, we went to the children's resale store for a new birthday dress. We found this pink and white polka dot one for $8.99.
In the afternoon we met Phillip at the library park to check on the baby swans.
This is what they looked like back in April...
Now they are huge and just starting to get their white feathers.
Here is the birthday girl with her dinner...grilled steak and french fries.
Grace found these cute umbrellas for the iced tea.
Promise not to laugh at my Cinderella cake?? I'm going with the "it was really hot and the icing melted" excuse. ;0) Fortunately, Emily didn't notice!
Make a wish!
Since we've been getting so much rain, Benjamin gave her a new umbrella. She thought the duck head handle was funny.
Five minutes later, it was even funnier. I'm thinking the sugar high has kicked in!
Off for a ride on the scooter. We finally made her go to bed at 10:00pm. She was just getting ready to play with her toys!
Thank you so much for the wonderful birthday wishes in the previous post!!
