six

November 07 2015. 001 (112)

this year, because we are so much closer to family (a five and a half hour car ride), we decided to do Lily’s six birthday festivities in west virginia

with the exception of her first birthday in portugal with my family, her birthdays have been spent in miami with friends and framily

naturally

it was time to have a west virginia birthday

per her request, there was homemade chocolate cake and presents in the afternoon and shrimp tacos for dinner (her favorite meal btw)

there was also lots of outside time with family, the dogs and her new bow and arrow

all in her new leopard/cheetah suit of course

she had a great day

everyone was happy to have her there to celebrate her birthday and she of course was happy to be there

she is always happy there

happy friday friends

wishing you all a happy weekend

when she woke up in the morning, we let her open one of the gifts Will and i got for her. she had been wanting a full body leopard/cheetah suit and i finally found one. she put it on right away, wore all day. slept in it. and wore it all the next day. as a matter of fact, she’s wearing it today at school for pajama day (even though it is not a pajama)
