Today is Kate's 5th birthday! She's always excited about her birthday (we've been counting down for a while now) but this year she seems extremely excited to be turning 5.
I started her morning off with her first gift, a birthday Barbie, that she got to open before breakfast. She loved the doll but was a little annoyed that I made her wait for the rest of her birthday presents until Daddy was with us so he could see her open them. Part of her gift this year is an overnight stay tomorrow night at Great Wolf Lodge in lieu of spending a bunch of money to have a party at a party place. Daddy even took a day and a half off work for it! (I know how much he loves water parks... ha ha)
