Leah has turned four

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.

The obligatory visit to the kids’ casino

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!

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.
