It’s hard to believe that three years ago little Kate came into our world. She has changed our lives beyond words and brought us immeasurable joy. (Okay, and a few challenges as well.) But we’re focusing on the JOY today as we celebrate her third birthday!
We had a mini-birthday fiesta for her this weekend, where she enjoyed playing at a little play place up the road from us with her friends Caia and Isaac. Then back at home, we ordered pizza, ate cupcakes and ice-cream, and enjoyed watching her open a few gifts.
Today is her actual birthday. It’s a pretty normal day: school, nap, swimming, but then we will head to McDonald’s for dinner - she told us she wanted to go to a “fancy restaurant”. I guess McDonald’s is pretty fancy to her… After, we’ll eat some chocolate cake at a little coffee place called Kafe Haus, and then come home to open up a couple more gifts. Happy Birthday Kate!
Here are some photos from Saturday’s event:
