We started celebrating Marin's birthday on Friday the 6th with a special family fun night, which is one of our favorite times together. We played games and celebrated! Emilie, John and I decorated her room while she was at school that day- a great surprise when she got home! The next morning we had pancakes with heart shaped strawberries inside. That afternoon we went to Frozen on Ice with Jake and Katy. Everyone had a great time!! The day of her birthday we had Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Lindsay and Jake and Katy for dinner. She chose to serve hot dogs on the grill and green beans.
That night was the Daddy/daugher dance! It was Emilie's first time getting to attend so that was especially special! They had a great time!!!
A few weekends later, we hosted all of her friends at Goldfish Swim School for her birthday party! The kids had the pool all to themselves and swam and played to their hearts delight! After that they dried off, had a snack and some cupcakes and sang Happy Birthday, to Marin!
So proud of this sweet, smart, fun, inquisitive little six year old! It is a the greatest pleasure in my life to be your mom, Marin Jane. Thanks for making me a mommy. I love you.
