Camping Birthday Party

As you know, I turned four earlier this month. To celebrate the day, my parents threw me a camping theme birthday party. I love pretending to camp in the living room so we had big plans to go to a park, set up a tent, have a scavenger hunt, roast hot dogs and marsmallows... yada, yada, yada... BUT, Spring 2010 has been miserably rainy. We had to change our plans and have the party inside at home. Bummer.

However, I was totally stoked the day of the party and didn't seem to mind much at all that we had to have it at home. I was just so excited the day of my party had finally arrived! We did set up a small play tent and even roasted marshmallows on an electric barbeque. Mom made some yummy "dirt cupcakes" (thank you Paula Deen for the excellent recipe!) that were enjoyed by all. I really did have a wonderful time and was so thankful my friends and family were there to celebrate with me.

Here are a few photos from my party:

A group shot in front of the tent. One or two of my friends may have snuck out of this photo-op.

Here we are roasting marshmallows out on our deck. Nana brought this electric barbeque and it sure came in handy!

I got a lot of help from my friends while opening my presents. They were just as excited as I was!

I gave each of my friends a favor bag that contained the following: a flashlight, compass, whistle, travel toothbrush, and granola bar.

The flashlights were definitely a hit!

I am so lucky to have great friends!

Almost Four

My birthday can't come soon enough this year. I ask my parents every day if today is my birthday and they keep telling me "Not yet." Grr... well I did celebrate with my friends already and will soon post photos from my party, but here are a few photos Mom took of just me the other day. Knowing Mom, we will probably still take some outdoor photos when the weather gets nice.
Mom says tomorrow is my birthday. Let's hope so! I'm getting anxious to tell people I'm four!
