I'm sure the grammas and the grandpas have been waiting for birthday pictures...
We took four other girls to a great place called KidMuze. The climbing wall was a big hit. (I climbed all the way to the top too!)
Then we came home and and the kids played in the back yard while Jeff picked up poop. (Can you even believe I posted this picture? I just think it's funny.)Hooray for bubbles!
And then cake! Designed by Claire. She loves animals and thought some plastic animal figures would be perfect cake toppers. And the big 8 candle, of course. And six regular candles. Why six? No idea. Yes, those are finger prints in the frosting. The girls couldn't resist and, really, why should they?
What is your wish, big girl?
I have mastered the Betty Crocker Bake 'N Fill pan with chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream filling.
It was a fun day. I tried to suggest games, projects, crafts, themes, etc. Claire was not interested in the least. She just wanted regular stuff that she enjoys and PLAYING. Indeed. Simple pleasures.
