birthday festivities

Rilyn got to choose one friend to bring with her to her birthday dinner on Thursday to Gattiland and she chose Cole.  Very sweet.  Rilyn and Cole ride to school together every morning and of course we see them all the time since Cole’s parents are our best friends since college and they live on the street behind us.

Rilyn is finally tall enough to ride the bumper cars!  She didn’t quite go anywhere,

but got bumped around a lot!

On Friday, Rilyn had a birthday sleepover. When the girls were over we decided to let the butterflies fly free that emerged from their cocoons the previous day.

At Rilyn’s sleepover, we did crafts, went swimming, ate Happy Meals, had ice cream sundaes, painted our nails, and watched movies! It was a fun-filled girly night and everyone had a good time! Rilyn was the last to fall asleep at about 11 p.m.!

ice cream!
sleepy time!

The next morning was her paint-your-own pottery party. I made a very special cake for her too that I was excited to cut into!

I love Rilyn’s friend’s face in this picture as James cuts open the Rainbow Cake!

Rilyn is all about rainbows so making this cake for her was so fun! I learned about it from this blog.
