B's Fifth Birthday

Brynna had a birthday a few weeks ago, and we had a lovely set of celebrations.

The actual event was mid-week, but we bookended things with a pair of parties.

Kicking off the festivities, we hosted a lovely family get-together (sorry, no photos, too busy laughing!) and then the weekend after had a little gathering in the park with a few friends. B requested a teddy bear party, and Deen obliged with a lovely cake. It turns out that when you go to the party goods store, you can buy all sorts of character-driven plates, cups, tablecloths, etc. but if you are not having a Dora party or a Star Wars party or a Disney Princess Party you are pretty much out of luck. No generic teddy bears (CareBears, yes) or horses (My Little Pony, yes). We did track down some teddy bear plates in the baby shower aisle and ended up using those.

Here's B eating with her friend C:

A wonderful time was had by all. Amazing that we have a five year old in our house now!
