'Best Party Ever' was what I heard but let's be honest, every birthday is the 'best birthday ever', right? We had a lot of fun celebrating Lena turning 5! She wanted a mermaid party, specifically an Ariel party which surprised me because Rapunzel is her absolute favorite but we went with it, so here goes.
If you haven't been to the Mighty Museum in Chillicothe you should go for a visit! They have lots of fun activities for the kids and they love the endless play. They literally love to play for hours there.
Lena loved having her friends stop by to celebrate with her!
After the museum we headed home for more fun with family! The girls always love to help set the table up and get everything ready for the party; I appreciate the big helpers! The Ariel plates were oh! so pretty!
Probably my favorite from the party were these cupcake toppers that I ordered from Etsy to top her cupcakes! They were totally cute and made us smile every time we looked at them!
And of course, the '#' cookies so that we can remember which party it was and mermaid tail cookies!
We washed those sweets down with some mermaid punch - SO good! I recommend mermaid punch at any time; Blue Hawaiian punch, pineapple juice and lemon-lime soda! Pick yourself up some!
Thank goodness we got to "fall back" and gain an hour of sleep because we needed it! Where did five years go? We learn something new every day from Lena and she makes us laugh constantly which sure is a treat. She's the daughter most like me and loves her Daddy the most. She's a happy-go-lucky, anything goes and so what if it doesn't kinda gal. She loves to dig in the dirt, find creatures to keep and wrestle with her sister. She makes up the best stories and songs and has the sweetest heart. Always wanting to share her treats and asking, 'Mommy, how can I help you?' Gosh, we were blessed with you.
I hope you had the best birthday. We had the best day ever and may we have many more!
