Cara had the milestone birthday of 5 years old today. It is at age five that my kids get their first friend birthday party. Somehow the cake (not my greatest talent) has become a big part of the party preparation. We had lots of help with Cara's My Little Pony Cake at the pre-party.
Her party was on Saturday. We had a spaghetti lunch and a few simple games.
She most looked forward to the pinata. Andy was not the big hitter of the group. He refused to hold the correct end of the bat.
The girls were adorable.
Cara blew out the first three candles without a problem. Caleb couldn't resist helping her with the others that she was having a hard time getting out.
She received some great gifts. This morning she was excited to get a few barbies to add to the ones she got on Saturday. She also got her own easel. Caleb made her the beautiful crown she is wearing. She also got a jump rope and hula hoop, which are skills she is going to need to work on, from the Kirks. Grandma Iva and Grandpa Neil got her a nice jewelry box and some jewelry to go in it. She was a very happy birthday girl.
