Morgan's 5th Birthday

Morgan's 5th birthday was over three weeks ago and we made sure to have a lot of fun and make it a super special day by doing things Morgan enjoys...

Morgan wanted French Toast for breakfast...yum! :-)

Of course we had to read this special birthday book.

Morgan loves getting her nails painted!

Plus we had to do a project...she LOVES projects! :-)

I also had planned a trip to the library to pick out books, get a library card and have reading time. Turned out to be Story Time when we showed up, so they read about birds and did another project. Morgan and Blake both got library cards and are both signed up for the Summer Reading Program, where they get candy for each library book they read, a toy for every 4 books read and after 16 they get a new book!! PLUS they get an entry for a prize for each book they read. What an exciting trip to the library!!! :-)

The library happens to be by the Swinging Bridge in our town, so we took a little walk across the bridge. It was the first time the kids had been across it and they thought it was great!! (This picture happens to be from Memorial Day. We checked out the bridge while we were waiting to ride in the fire truck in the parade.)

We also went to the grocery store so the kids could grab a little something from the 50 cent toy vending machines...they both ended up with something with an elephant...just a neat coincidence I guess ;-)

Morgan had wanted pancakes for lunch but, since we were in town, we ended up at McDonald's instead. Another funny coincidence, the little girl next to us was also there for her 5th birthday lunch and the woman behind us was also there for her birthday!! Morgan must have a popular birthday :-)

I had won a coupon for a free box of Nestle Drumsticks, so we had those for an afternoon snack. YUM!

We spent some time in the afternoon playing some games. The kids LOVE to play games!

Then for dinner, Morgan asked for pizza and they seem to like my homemade pizza...

After dinner was present opening time. Morgan got a few small things, since she was getting her main presents on her birthday party day with the family. (A couple books, stickers and a shirt.)

She had to blow out candles for her birthday, so I made her a big chocolate chip cookie and we sang the birthday song, then she blew out her candles quicker than I could get a picture.

That pretty much sums up Morgan's 5th birthday! I'll make another post with all the fun we had at her party :-)
