The (Belated) Birthday Post


On October 1st, Meghan turned five.  5.  F.I.V.E. Five.

She was very much looking forward to her birthday.  Last year she was invited to many birthday parties for her friends.  They did crafts or gymnastics or lots of other things that were way more exciting than the parties with which she was familiar.  But, there was one location that stood out.  And, for almost a year now, she’s wanted her party to be at Pump It Up

This year was the first year she was going to have a “real” party.  With her friends.  And, although a bit pricey, I welcomed the idea of having 20 kids someplace other than our house.

She was very excited.  I wish I had pictures but although we were only responsible for remembering the kids, cupcakes and camera, I managed to forget the batteries.  I did, however, remember the flip and the 2 batteries required for that to operate.

Here is just a taste of the fun.

Of course we sang Happy Birthday.

And there was cake were cupcakes.

I was not planning on making milk-free cupcakes because I figured I could just give Sean something different.  However, after learning that one of the other children also had a milk allergy I decided to look into it.

I found this bakery that makes cakes and cupcakes dairy free.

They looked great and were yummy. Meghan requested the butterflies.
