Then we put on a Wizard of Oz-themed birthday party. It was a hit and my baby girl noticed every detail. She loves a theme party, just like her mama. Everyone got in on the action, Cory dressed like the Scarecrow, Grandma came as Glinda, Theo was the Lion, Julian was the Tin Man, I was assigned the Wicked Witch role by Bea (interesting choice), and Auntie was a little of each character. Even McKenna the doll got a special custom dress made by Grandma.
After the party, we girls headed into Boston to stay at a hotel. Beatrice requested Chicken Fingers and Mashed Potatoes for her birthday dinner. The next morning we went swimming at the hotel pool and out to breakfast for chocolate chip pancakes.
Last night as I was putting her to bed she said "Mama I had the best birthday ever." If only we could stay 5 forever!
