Aubrey is 5!

... ok she turned 5 on the 24th of last month. I have been 1) emotional 2) out of town 3) swamped or 4) ALL OF THE ABOVE.

But we did have a blast on the Saturday before Aubrey's birthday. You can call it a LIE, I call it creative parenting --> I told Aubrey that Saturday was her birthday. I had family call that day to sing to her.

We picked up 2 friends and we went to Build A Bear. Without prior notice, and with only 4 kids, the folks there were able to give us the full party experience! Name tags, hearts, pictures, etc! It was great. Each girl picked any bear they wanted, one accessories (wig, panties, shoes), one outfit. They had a blast and each animal was unique and really showed each girls personality.

We then headed to Ultimate Play Zone. We bounced and climbed and jumped and laughed and had a blast. Nana stopped by and played and went to lunch and cake with us!

From there we walked over to Boardwalk Burger and Fries. By now it is more like chaos than fun (for me anyway).

And then we all came back to our house and had cake, started watching Hannah Montana the movie (but didn't watch more than 10 minutes), went outside, played, played and then we took everyone home.

From there Aubrey wanted to go to the Club for crab cakes... we dressed up, picked up our nephew, and hit HVGC for a nice dinner.

Sunday we had a birthday party with my family for Aubrey at my Nana's.

With Nana!

With Brianna

With our new Build a Bears

Friends and Cake!

Oh 5!!! It is like they really aren't babies anymore once they get to five. No wonder you have been emotional :)

She is beautiful!
