Opening gifts in the meadow
opening gifts in the meadow... black parasol and all
A mini bday bunting for tonight's cake!
a quick mini cake topper bunting (which briefly caught fire in the candles for added excitement)
handmade decorations, but of course
Tried an true bday fun
tried and true birthday games (those spotted arms? markers and tattoos)
Searching for the right piñata tree.
including the fastest little rainbow piñata ever whipped up (more details at a later date)
Just right
and the day wouldn't have been complete for this tree-climbing birthday TEEN without...
a tree!
