I had a parent meeting Monday night at Emma's preschool. While I was gone Grandma Jen had her hands full. Emma was a bit stressed out at the thought of school and gave grandma a run for her money. Upon my return we loaded up the van and headed for an early celebration at Chuck E Cheese.
|Easton got in on the fun too|
|I don't think Nascar is in the future for these two...|
|She's a pro at Angry Birds, must be all that practice on Daddy's phone.|
|Easton enjoyed all the new toys to play with.|
|My little dancing dinosaur princess picked this ensemble out all on her own.|
|Headed to dinner|
Friday we hit Neil's Dutch Village. I had a Groupon I needed to use up and I thought it would be another fun outing for the birthday girl before we headed to the doctors for her four year appointment and shots. I'm glad I didn't pay the full price for admission- Emma was really only interested in riding the carousel and the swings!

We finally forfeited the second hand trampoline plan, mainly because we were out of time and couldn't find one that fit the bill. On Saturday night we ended up at Wal-Mart at 10:00 at night to pick up a trampoline. I had checked several stores earlier in the day and had the one picked out that I wanted, only to find it wasn't available in the stores! It was a major fiasco, but after two hours of assembly in the dark we had one up and ready for fun by 1:30 a.m.
Sunday we had a birthday party for her. Emma would have invited everyone she knew and their neighbors if I'd let her, but we kept it to family. I told her maybe next year she can have a party with her friends over. We had 22 people as it was!
She chose an Olivia theme this year and I tried to incorporate that as much as possible without knowing anything about the show. We had a pork roast (thankfully Emma doesn't understand that aspect!), RED skin potato salad, a fruit salad with raspberries, strawberries and watermelon and roasted RED pepper dip with veggies. There was PINK lemonade and PINK punch.
