Addison's 6th Birthday!

Addi with her puppy Cake (yes, that is supposed to be a puppy!)
Six years ago on July 12, Addison Rose was born at a big 5 pounds. Yesterday, we celebrated her 6th birthday. Amazing how quickly the time flies.

On her birthday, Addison selects what we are going to do. She was quite indecisive! In the morning, the kids played school while I got things prepped for her family birthday dinner party in the evening. We ate a picnic lunch outside before heading off to the pool.  Addison wanted to go to a park, but I convinced her to go to the pool since it was too hot for the park. Addison brought her friend, Kate, so that made the pool more fun. It was so hot we could not walk on the concrete. The kids played, swam and had fun in the COLD water until the 3pm break. We then had to go home to get cleaned up for her party.

Addison's friend came home with us, so they played while I busied myself getting things ready. The Grandparents came for dinner of Addison's favorites: HyVee Chicken (funny, this is what she asked for, and we had never had HyVee chicken before!), fresh Iowa corn on the cob brought in my my parents, chips n dip and crackers and dip, strawberries, pasta salad and jello fluff (the kids LOVE this!).

After dinner, Addison was so excited to open her presents. She had not opened any yet, so she could not wait another moment. She opened her favorites: Purple clothes, the gigantic teddy bear, polly pockets, a unicorn on a stick (like a horse of a stick), another unicorn, a watch, and an iPod touch (from us). She was so excited and appreciative of all her presents. Her little face just lite up. So cute.

Before we knew it, it was time for everyone to go home and the kids to go to bed. They all wanted to sleep in Addison's room. Since it was her birthday, she decided on a sibling sleepover. What a way to end turning 6 years old.

I love her list! Hopefully next time, she'll warm up more because she has so much in common with my little girl. I am glad she had a happy birthday! Sounds like a great way to turn 6!
