I have an official 5 year old.


Where has the time gone that I find myself having a 5 year old daughter. I no longer have preschool children. That is mind blowing..

Well the mister is still out to sea so this was a daddy-less b-day.. Again… Suffice to say the timing of Little Miss’ day has not been convenient for this submarine that my husband in on..

I like to think that the day was still pretty super awesome….

All she wanted for her birthday was princess dresses. That was it..



She helped her brother and I make her cake.. After all, if you want something done right you do it yourself!




Practicing for the BIG moment

Then we went to see the movie Despicable Me 2:


I love this movie.. It was adorable. My kids were laughing so hard they couldn’t breathe in some moments…


Then we went home and had some cake!!!! Strawberry cake = interesting but not really my choice of cake..

I’m still getting used to WordPress… no sure if it’s going to actually let me load the video of L blowing out her cake..

Then…. because we weren’t finished yet!

We had some late night swimming in the pool:


ZLswim Zswim Zswim2

It’s hard to tell but we had cracked some glow sticks and let them float in the water… We have no street lights, and the motion light near the garage was our only source of light. It was creepy and cool at the same time…

Then at 10 I forced the children to go to bed.. They insisted they weren’t tired, but they passed out within 5 minutes… Ā šŸ˜‰ Funny how that works!
