My oldest turned 5 this past Saturday. I decided to just take out my camera and let the weekend unfold with all 3 of my children. We started the day by singing to the birthday girl. We had started celebrating her that Friday and let her decide what she wanted to do.Our carpets actually were getting professionally cleaned that day (Woo-hoo) So the first half our day was filled with snacks and cartoons. My oldest is a very simple child. She just wanted to stay home for most of the day. We are always on the go so who could blame her. Their party is next week so we took it easy.
