Tom and Abby turned 5 years old on Thursday. They had a busy day with school and an after school party. Paul made special ice cream cone cupcakes that were a huge hit.
Unfortunately for Abby, she took a tumble at school that day. She landed on the playground area where the pavement ends and the bark begins. I think there is a lip there and her face fell right on it. She had a terrible black and blue knee, a bump on her head and a raspberry right across her upper lip. Then as if that wasn't bad enough, on her walk from the school to the park she popped her special pink "5" helium balloon I handed to her just moment before. That was far more upsetting than the bumps and bruises. But Tom, being the nice big brother that he is, lent his blue "5" helium balloon to her.
I asked them to stand together for a photo today and they were less than thrilled to oblige. This was the best I got!
We're off to Big Spoon to continue the celebrations with our friends and family this afternoon!
