Violet enjoyed her grown up night thoroughly and fell asleep in the car in the way home. So tuckered out was she, we managed to get her out of her fancy dress and to bed without her waking.

Violet wanted to be Cleopatra, Jack a jaguar and the triplets, I was still able to steer, and I found these adorable wolf and little red ridding hood costumes at my resale.

Violet's big day started with a party in her room! While the kids slept, we filled her room with balloons so she would awake to fun. In reality it just bred confusion, but I got I kick out of it!
I made her a "7" shirt, but since she has only worn it on her actual birthday day and never again, maybe she is getting too old for the that tradition? Too bad, I plan on making her one (and having her wear it!) forever!!
We had her party at a neighborhood art studio called One Strange Bird, and I have to say they did a fantastic job. The kids all made a painting on canvas and then created the most deluxe masks I have seen from a birthday party (this is a pretty popular activity).
Jack's first day of kindergarten! He says he wants to be a veterinarian. He is looking forward to his first day "in real school" and is not at all nervous. He is attending Edison and his teacher will be Mrs
While visiting Uncle Luke and his family, we schlepped out the bikes to take advantage of the fantastic bike path behind their house and the wide suburban sidewalks. Violet, almost turning 6, had been reluctant to take off the training wheels. With Jack, still 4, taking them off wasn't on the radar. Aunt Sarah was in town and she managed to convince V to give it a try.
