After Mike’s interview with Annie revealed her dream birthday, Mike and I did our best to make it happen.
First, we crept into her room while she slept and put balloons on the floor.
Not as many as last year, but she still loved it. Also yes, she’s sleeping sideways.
We met my parents and aunt for breakfast, then we all came back to our house for presents.
Then we loaded her into the car and she fell asleep.
When she woke up she discovered we were at…
Disneyland! Since Mike and I got annual passes after our last visit there in December, we thought a few hours at the park would be the perfect way to spend her birthday. And it was!
She got her favorite meal of mac & cheese:
She got to “play the games” and win prizes (via mama’s skillz):
She got lots of attention thanks to her birthday button:
She got to “ride the horses” (and mama officially retired from riding the horses until she is no longer pregnant):
She got to ride the teacups with Daddy:
Then we met a whole bunch of her favorite people:
And if that wasn’t enough, she got more cake and candles:
When she was eating her cake she said, “Mama, I love ice cream and I like you, too!” I think she meant that as a compliment, so I took it. On the car ride home, we asked her if there was anything else she wished she’d done on her birthday. “Um…no!” A job well done by mama and daddy, then.
Happy birthday to my lovely three year old. I hope your crash back to reality isn’t too brutal.
