Alyssa's 4!!!

Last Monday was Alyssa's 4th birthday. We started the night before by filling her room with birthday balloons after she had gone to bed. I heard her when she woke up saying, "Mommy??? There's balloons in my room!" It was too cute. :) We started her birthday off with breakfast at Joe's Farm Grill with our friends Ashley, Marcus & Evie. It was very yummy and we all had a great time hanging out together. That night we had our family over for dinner and cake...which was supposed to be a special Barbie cake that I made for her, but ended up being a 'special' Barbie cake from the grocery store bakery. ;) Then the next day we hosted play group at a gym (the same one we had Emi's b-day party at). We were going to bring the grocery store Barbie cake for everyone, but since that ended up being eaten the night before we picked up donuts on the way...kind of like cake, right?!?! ;) For her friend party we went to Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center. Nate and I had taken the girls there on Emi's birthday and Alyssa has not stopped asking to have her birthday party there since then. I didn't think we were going to be able to do a party for her this year, but it ended up working out just perfectly and I'm so glad it did because she had a great time!

She's been wanting to climb trees for a while now and we finally found one she could climb...she did great!
The Barbie cake. :(
The replacement cake. :)

Her 4yr appt. We brought Emi's baby and the dr.'s kit to play with while we were waiting for her shots.
Waiting to go into the pool.
