Our sweet Caroline turned 5 back in October, and while I did her traditional birthday post, I never posted about all of the celebrating that we did! First, Mimi came down the week before her birthday to see a soccer game and celebrate a little early. She brought her a chocolate pumpkin cake!
Caroline's first birthday card came in the mail from Pastor Craig. She was over the moon to get mail!
We were planning to be on our big road trip to Arkansas the day of Caroline's actual birthday, so we planned a low-key celebration the weekend before. Caroline has had her eye on a new cupcake shop in town, so we invited a few friends to come and join us and then play afterward at the park. Here are the invitations we made together:
The cupcake shop even let us do a little decorating!
And, of course, took a few more pictures of our big 5-year-old!
We drove all day the actual day of Caroline's birthday and finally arrived in Fayetteville, AR, right at dinner time. Grandma and Aunt Rachael planned a BEAUTIFUL princess party for our little princess! It was so fun to celebrate with Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Stephen, Aunt Rachael, Leah, Bekah, and Micah.
Caroline was pretty impressed with Grandma's castle cake!
Excited about 5 whole dollars in the mail from Great-Grandma and Grandpa!
The little girls dressed up like princesses, and Micah was a prince!
And just because it's cute, here's a picture of AK with Grandma!
For most of these party pictures, photo credit goes to Grandpa. Thanks, Dad!
