Birthday Party #1 for PK1

PK1 turned eight years old last week.  I know every mom says this, but it is unbelievable that I have an eight year old.  In lieu of a party this year she wanted to take her best friend and her sister to Build a Bear.  I had hoped PD could join us, but he had to work.  I was a little nervous about balancing all three girls at Build a Bear, but since they were such sweet young ladies, it all went beautifully.  When we picked up PK1's best friend, she was gifted with sea monkeys!  Our first pet(s)!  I silently cursed my friend a little, but the care of the little darling sea monkeys was quickly turned over to PD.  I just have to look at them every day on the kitchen counter. blech. But of course PK1 is delighted.

We headed right to Build-a-Bear.  They gave PK1 a birthday necklace.

Then we got lunch at Five Guys:

And came back to our house for cookie cake:

The girls played and played and played and when it was over PK1 said it was the best birthday she ever had.  High praise indeed.

Guess what? We have a Five Guys in Wichita now..just a few blocks away. All the more reason to come for a visit!

I don't know how I haven't checked your blog until now, but this is awesome! Very happy that she had a good day despite our lack of calling and singing. :( And your kitchen looks great too.
