We had three celebrations for Brighton this year - cupcakes at the beach with her cousin Greenlee who turned 7 in August, pizza, ice cream and presents with her grandparents and aunts/uncles on her actual birthday and a Sunday afternoon with her friends jumping on the trampoline, swimming in the baby pool and taking a run on the Nemo slip-n-slide her grandmother got for her.
Here are a bunch of photos of it all:
|Brighton and Greenlee with their birthday cupcakes|
|Pizza party with our family - her favorite!|
|SO many presents from her grandparents!|
|Matt made Brighton a dollhouse for her birthday!|
|Her grandparents and aunt and uncle bought her Calico Critters to fill up the new little house.|
|For the party with her friends, we made cupcakes and had popsicles and juice boxes. Easy!|
|And used decorations we bought for last year's party plus some balloons!|
|My backyard full of friends and their babies = heaven!|
|I had the distinct pleasure of teaching B what "taking a turn" meant so others could use the slip-n-slide. Not fun!|
|Freeze-e-pops make for some happy kiddos!|
|Happy Birthday little one!|
What a fun week!
