My little girl is all grown up....

Happy Birthday to my little monkey. I can't believe Emi is 6. She had a super day..



Daddy brought her a dozen red roses after his morning bike ride (ignore the awful spandex beanie that he wears....SEXY). She was so happy to have her own flowers.



Then she had her first non-house party at her gymnastics gym....I seriously will never do a party at home again. It's so great to just show up and the kids LOVE it. They all wanted to sleep there. It was all we could do to get them home. She scored on Ponies, Pet Shop stuff, Webkinz, and all sorts of great things.


The "gramp" tramp...hee hee hee

All the kids in the pit....I hope we didn't lose one in there. But then, I guess we lost a kid at Parker's 6th birthday.(Sorry, Monika....couldn't resist)

In other happenings this weekend, we had a ball at the Bishopric party. Learned some cool games with Costco cups and a game called Tip It. And to our fellow ward members, look for the new and improved "Free Range Nursery" coming soon. (By the way, Karen, I can't get the Star Wars Acapella guy out of my head, either)

They grow up fast, don't they? And I'm with you on the party thing being outside the house. My kids don't get a "friend" party every year, but when they do have one it's always somewhere other than my house. I figure my sanity is worth the cost, plus the kids are having fun. It's a win-win for everyone!

Emi is getting so big! I remember when we had our beach trip, you were buying her baby clothes at Gymboree... Those parties hosted by someone else are FABULOUS! Scott had his 4th birthday party at BounceU and it was heaven! I think we'll do a friend party like that every other year.

I love that Bill bought her roses. That is so sweet and she will remember it forever. Great spandex hat too.

Emi is the most darling little girl. I love talking to her when I volunteer at school. I can't believe she is 6! I'm with you on the b-day party at a non-home venue. So worth every penny and they are never cheap!

At least there were no gorillas, otherwise I am sure my kid would have run off again! Jade had a blast -- Thanks Emi!! And I am dying to know whay you mean about the "free range nursery."
