4!

So-last Saturday we celebrated Josie's 4th birthday with family and friends.  We'd had 2 months of nearly constant rain so I was so relieved that it got nice and sunny and warm for the party-since it was outside at a park.

Lovely day so all the kids ended up in the fountain!


One of the gifts (from my SIL and brother and kids) was a bunch of Tinkerbell dolls and houses and stuff.  Ten million itty bitty tiny things that took me 30 minutes to unpack out of the plastic.  Look at these pics-I told my SIL that I wasn't sure if she really loved Josie or really hated me! ;)  Of course, Marina had to point out that it could be both . . . .

See how tiny those are?  There are teacups I have to hold with my fingernails . . . . But it makes sense that they are extra tiny since they belong to fairies!

We had a great day and I drew a little treasure map for the kids and we took them on a little adventure to find pirate booty-but I didn't get any pictures.  Trust me-it was hilarious.  Keeping 5  three and four year olds on track to follow a map and find "hidden" treasures is like herding cats.  They would be looking right at a bright pink bag taped to the underside of a table and STILL not find it.  Or we'd run through the fountain and lose a kid.  I don't remember Dora having this kind of trouble.

So-Josie's actually birthday is tomorrow and is looking to be a quiet affair with just the two of us-I'm thinking a Red Robin birthday song and sundae is in order!
