On Sunday, my oldest girl, Kiara, turned 3. We rented a princess bounce house and had all kinds of friends over. The bounce house was a hit because the grass was too wet to play on. We actually threw tarps over pretty much the entire back yard, so people wouldn’t get stuck in the mud. We had a friend from the college group come and share her skill of balloon animals with the kids. They loved it. It’s funny though, kids are just as happy with a long skinny balloon (a sword) as they are with the most elaborate, multi colored flower!) Kiara got lot’s of Strawberry Shortcake, lots of princess stuff, and lots of pink. She loved it all and you can tell by the expression on her face how much she loves those gifts!
