This year for Holly's birthday we decided to separate the children's party and the family party - our house is small and a combined party is a full house to put it mildly! So, this year we opted for two different celebrations instead. It made for less crowding and more time to visit at each party.
Last night we enjoyed a beautiful Spring evening over bbq'd food, family and birthday fun. They sun was an amazing touch to a perfect night! After some good food Holly opened her birthday presents, enjoyed some cake and then spent the evening playing with her cousin, auntie and family friend... a whole night of hide and seek (we have the perfect yard for it). She had a blast and a perfect celebration to ring in her 5th year!
