It hardly seems possible, but Leah has turned four, yet another sign that I am getting old. Thanks to an unexpected trip to Ohio, Leah’s birthday got stretched out over a week. She had a great time the day before her birthday with Grandpa and a downtown date with Auntie Lizzy.
The actual birthday
Leah awoke to the return of her family and a few presents to open before she ate breakfast.
known as Chuck E. Cheese. There are so many parallels to casinos:
- Attempts to make it tough to identify the time (dark blinds over windows)
- Blips and beeps when games pay out
- Pit bosses who unplug games that are paying out too much. This actually happened to us last year, right in the middle of playing a game!
When she got home, she got to open an awesome Flutterbye Fairy (Dawn, in case you’re wondering) from the Milford Vogels.
The birthday party
Thankfully, reason won over and we didn’t repeat some of our crazy over-the-top parties of the past. It was essentially a playdate with a few of Lele’s preschool friends and “pupcakes”, as she calls them. There was an obstacle course, present opening, dress up, and time for toys. Leah chose a Frozen them, so we had a few Frozen crafts and Frozen bowling.
