The birthday, for REAL:
For Kate's "REAL" birthday, we had some special surprises in store for her. First, Beebs got her a miniature kitchen set.
Next, she got a new chapter book . . . Charlotte's Web! She and Lisa recently finished a fun version of Little Women, and Lisa found Charlotte's Web at a fundraiser yard sale up the street.
And finally . . . THE PINK VIOLIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kate was leader of the band the other day with sister friends.
When we move, we are going to be in a 2-bedroom, student housing apartment. Therefore, the girls need to be in the same room, so we've been looking for day/trundle beds or bunk beds for the girls. We came across this on KSL and had to get it. Just perfect.
It has a slide and the girls just love it! Lisa is repurposing the sheet you see hanging to be a tent with windows. The other blog will have those details :)
Our sweet neighbor Eugenia helped us make tamales, estilo Mexicano. It was quite a process, but we ended up with 48 yummy pork tamales. We're figuring out some recipes that don't involve two bricks of hydrogenated lard :)
For the final installment of Princess Camp, the girls got to meet Ariel! Kate was a little stand-offish, since she's not used to bare torsos, but she warmed up for the pictures.
We really LOVE this little cafe in old downtown American Fork. They have a couple little places for kids to play and this time they had some toys and chef accessories.
