Emma's Birthday

What a great day we had yesterday. It may have been Emma's birthday, but we all enjoyed the day, which turned out to be perfect. It was a warm, gorgeous day and even though there was a chance of rain, it stayed nice and sunny all day long.

The day started with a special birthday breakfast for Emma--chocolate chip pancakes. She called it a "breakfast cookie" and we let her think whatever she wanted! :)
Her "big" birthday gift from us was a tricycle. She loves riding the display trikes at the store and so we knew she'd love it. She was so excited to open it and immediately took her doll for a ride.

She and Daddy went for a ride later in the afternoon. She can't quite push the pedals on her own, but she'll get the hang of it soon!
Emma's birthday party was at Little Gym and WOW! It was fantastic. The staff took care of everything for us--set up, clean up, and everything in between. It was a great place for all the kids to run around, jump, and do all the things toddlers love to do in a safe place where they can't break anything!

Six of Emma's friends came to her party and Emma loved playing with them at the gym and showing off the skills she's learned there.

For the past two weeks we have heard about cake and nothing else. When she finally got some, she didn't waste any time digging in!
From the looks of things, she had a great time!
After the party and a nap, she spent the evening playing with her new toys and retelling us about her day. One of her gifts was this tent, which she used to hide from us and her crying sister. She took all of her toys and a snack inside and was all set!

Happy birthday sweetie! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your special day!
