Ginny's Birthday (March 31st)

My little girl is three now, and when you ask her she knows it. She hasn't said two since her birthday. So we decided to get her a kitchen. It's really fun and since Violet got some pots and pans it worked out nicely.

Grandma, Lily, and Gunnar came to celebrate with us. This is Ginny in the morning on her birthday. They gave her books, a bear stuffed animal, and a bee finger puppet. Thanks guys!

Here are the cupcakes I made for her party. All I have to say is rolling out spice drops to make the dresses of nine princesses took two hours too long. NEVER AGAIN! The pirate was simple. I'm glad I could make them for Ginny. Plus I had to buy a mini cupcake pan to make them and its a nice addition to my collection of baking tools.

So Ginny and her buddies and cousins gathered at the bell square play place for a pinic lunch and play time. Fun was had by all.

Heres Annie and Vi climbing.

This is Claire sporting the party favors. The boys got pirate hats.

Here's the gang opening presents.

A hug goodbye from her best friend Riley. Thanks to all who came and make the party so much fun for Ginny.

That night we went to Red Robin for dinner. Ginny chose it because of the mac-n-cheese. Here we have Elaine, Grant, Violet, Ben, Brandon, Ashley, Ginny, Me, Gunnar and Lily. Thanks Mom for taking the picture.

Time to blow out the candle! The big bag behind her was from Brandon and Ashley. It contained a pink princess dress, tiara, and earings. Nice work guys. Violet also gave her "The Little Mermaid" DVD. Ginny had not seen it yet.

Tastes great! (ignore my silly face)

Lastly we have Ginny opening her card from Ben's parents.

With the money inside she bought this dress she fell in love with when we were looking for easter dresses. Happy Birthday Ginny. We love you!
This is her in the dress from Brandon and Ashley.

FYI, this particular restaurant is THE ORIGINAL Red Robin, which started a few blocks from our house in 1969. Just FYI.
