My Baby Turned 5!

I cannot tell you how fast 5 years went. I know every parent in the world says this, but seriously! I feel like she was just born. Skylar has been the light of my life and I am so grateful God gave her to me. She is so special in so many ways. With that said, I thought she deserved the best birthday ever. Five is a pretty big deal and this was the first year that she was super excited about her birthday. We had a crazy, fun filled weekend with friends and family and my little girl got a little tired by the end of it all. There were a few meltdowns that happened, but we got through it. I am so thankful for everyone in her life.

To start the weekend off right, we had a Trolls party at a super fun place called Inneractive. It is located in Minnetonka, Mn so if you are ever in the area, you HAVE to check it out. They had a ton of activities for kids of all ages. Skylar’s favorite thing was the giant bouncy pillow. Here are a few pictures from the party.

 

You can’t have a party without a Trolls cake!

She loved her trolls hair. It is the cutest thing ever. All of her friends wanted to wear it. Kids are so funny. Everyone wanted to be her best friend and follow her around because she was the birthday girl. Skylar got a little overwhelmed and shut down by the end of the party. She wouldn’t talk to anyone! It’s a good thing it was only a 2 hour party.

It was really nice because the room was already decorated. We just had to bring our own table coverings and any other decorations. I also like that they didn’t have staff on site. Sometimes that can get annoying because the staff feels like they need to be in charge of the birthday party.

I love that Skylar’s friend had to help blow out the candles too! So funny.

After the birthday party, we went to a hotel where Skylar got to swim, spend time with her grandparents and eat more sugar! This girl was so full of sugar she didn’t know what to do with herself. Way too much fun!

After that grandmas’ and grandpas’ came to the hotel to take us out to dinner. Skylar got even more presents! She was so excited.

So the day was a blast-the night, not so much. Skylar ended up throwing a huge tantrum when it was time for bed because she wanted to go home. She didn’t want to sleep in the hotel….ummm what?! She’s so weird. lol. We were not giving in, but after an hour of screaming we were like, okay now it’s not fun for anyone so let’s just go. So we did!! So much for buying a hotel for the night. But now we know not to plan too many things in one day for her.
