We take birthday's serious around this family! We celebrate a birthday week, not just a birthday! Chris started the tradition of having up a big birthday banner! Whoever is having a birthday week gets to pick where we eat if we choose to go out for dinner that week. And of course, they pick their dessert of choice and birthday dinner on their very special day!
This year Lily chose to have a play date instead of a "party." She wanted to have a friend over all day to play inside and out and to join us for a dinner of steak and corn on the cob grilled to perfection! It was a perfectly beautiful and hot summer day! The girls played all day long uninterrupted!
For her "cake" Lily chose mini vanilla cup cakes with chocolate ice cream and the girls decorated them! Then after dinner we dug in and ate as many as each of us wanted!
It was a very happy birthday for a very special girl!
