The Actual Birthday

We had partied hard on Friday and Saturday but we still had our big girl's actual birthday to go on Sunday.  She woke up early and we got to snuggle in bed with her.  A cupcake and bacon are the perfect breakfast for a birthday girl.  
 She got to open up her first present after breakfast.  She had been wanting some Barbies so we got her a few Barbies and accessories.
 Then it was off to church in her 5 shirt!
 We had a very low key afternoon where the kids got to play with all of Kate's new toys.  They spent hours putting together Kate's new Legos.
 She got to open her new Barbie Glam house.
 And Ben joined her for some Barbie play.  So fun to watch!
 The last few times we had been to the mall Kate had asked to jump in the giant harness jumpy thing.  I of course had always put her off but her birthday seemed to be a great time to do it.  So we ventured to the mall for her to jump.  She was a little nervous at first but really got into it at the end and said she felt like she was flying!
 We finished up the day with dinner at Outback.  Every birthday girl deserves some Chocolate Thunder from Down Under!
It was a perfect family day celebrating our sweet girl!!
