A Graduation and a Party
A couple of weeks ago was Yaya's graduation. Kaitlin was excited to go to a graduation again but was disappointed when we didn't get to ride a school bus like we did at Daddy's graduation. We are so proud of Olivia, I can't believe how much she has gown up since I first met her.
Surprisingly Kaitlin did not make too much noise during the ceremony and was rewarded with Chick-fil-a for lunch.
Later that night Uncle Keith, Aunt Joan and cousin Aidan came for a visit. Katie loves playing with Aidan, she wanted to go with him when he left the next day.
Saturday was Katie's birthday party at her favorite place, Chick-fil-a. She was so excited she couldn't wait for the party to start.
About a week before her party Katie decided that she really wanted a Tinkerbell cake with all the faries. Before that I thought we would be going with a princess or Strawberry Shortcake cake. We found all the faries at Toys'R'Us and added them to the cake.
Katie has been talking about having party hats at her party for at least a month. I think it was due to an episode of Special Agent Oso, but I'm not sure. I was surprised that the kids wanted to wear them as well.
Katie refused to go up to the slide when we first got there. She wanted to go down the slide but she was afraid of the things she had to go up to get to it even though Uncle Big and Daddy tried to go with her. All it took was a few minutes with Yaya and she could't get enough.
After the party she left with Yaya and Papa to go visit her cousins in South Carolina. I cried ( I am a little hormonal you know ) but she left with no problems. I know she's having a great time swimming and seeing the family but I will be excited when she gets back Wednesday.
