Since yesterday, Mary Grace has maintained that she is now four. If I correct her, she will promptly set the record straight. “I’m four”, she continues to state in such a matter of fact way that it is hard to argue.
Anyway, the two (four?) year old had a great day yesterday. Here’s the basic gist in pictures…
Since it was a celebratory occasion, I made cinnamon rolls. Mary Grace decided to be a healthy little party pooper and insisted on yogurt instead. Meanwhile, I read one of her new books: Nurse Nancy. I love vintage Little Golden Books, and I may be just a teensy bit biased toward the subject matter, so it’s a winner all around.
Next, we directed the party outside to where her “big” present from us was waiting. We scored a Little Tikes playhouse off of Craigslist, and it was a definite hit.
We then spent the morning at a bounce house place in Cary. This was such a good call- the kids had a blast! (Oh and hush up people- you try to take a semi-decent picture of a kid going nuts in a bounce house!)
This was followed by lunch with Matt’s grandparents at Chickfila… a napless afternoon for Mary Grace (who was too amped up to rest I suppose)… and alas, a birthday dinner of champions: pizza and funfetti cake. (Yes, I know the icing is falling off of the side of the cake. And yes, it still tasted fabulous.)
