Now that we are in Spokane we have the opportunity to celebrate birthday's and other occasions with my family. My family has been so important in my life and it means so much that my girls are able to have these experiences as well. So this year we had two birthday parties for Mia, a family party and a kid party. Twice the parties, twice the fun!

The family party was at my cousin Terri and her husband Pat's house. Mia and Pat share a birthday so we were celebrating him as well. We had a nice BBQ, the girls swam in the pool and enjoyed the first of two unicorn cakes that I made for Mia. She has been talking about having a unicorn party for about 6 months now. I didn't even know she knew what a unicorn was until she announced that was what she wanted for her birthday. Trying to find birthday items that have unicorns proved to be a bit more challenging than I anticipated. But being a mother who doesn't want to disappoint my 3 year old, I made it work and she loved it!

The second party was at, Jump N-Party, which is full of inflatable jump houses and slides. There was about 10 kids and they all had a blast! Mia jumped, ran and slid down the slides for an hour straight. So much fun! All in all, turning three turned out to be a lot of fun for Mia. She has been blessed with spending so much time with a lot of wonderful family and friends. We look forward to many more birthday's to celebrate!
