Chuck E Cheese Birthday

Several months before Ava's birthday she agreed on a Fairy birthday. So I booked the location and started gathering fairy related d├ęcor. Well, about 3 weeks before her birthday she started telling me daily that should couldn't wait to go to Chuck E Cheese for her birthday!! She had been obsessed with watching Chuckie YouTube videos!   So Jon and I surprised her with a trip to Chuck E Cheese as a birthday gift.  Just the 3 of us.  It was a lot of fun and she was so thrilled!

I mean, the smile says it all!  The place was pretty quiet that day so she got some one on one time.

More Birthday

Ava had a little celebration with her class at school. She was smiling SO BIG when they sang Happy Birthday!

After the school party Ava said she wanted to sing Happy Birthday "at home."  So we did.

Birthday morning with gifts.  She was so excited she made Jon get up at 7am!  She couldn't wait.

Princess clip dolls, Olaf tea set, and an Ariel costume.  She had so much fun opening gifts she packed them all back in the bags and REOPENED them again!!  Too funny.

Cutest mermaid!

Enchanted Woodland Fairy Party

We had so much fun at Avalyn's birthday party. It was an enchanted forest woodland fairy theme and was held at a nature center. The kids had lots of fun coloring, running around in fairy wings and animal masks, and making fairy wands. The Woodland Fairy told the kids an interactive story and showed them 3 animals (an owl, a toad, and a bunny). Ava got lots of princess and dress up gifts. She was so happy. She told me several times throughout the day, "Mommy Mommy thank you thank you for my birthday and cupcakes!" So sweet. Love her so much and can't believe she's 4!

Worlds of Fun

My dads company had the annual family picnic at Worlds of Fun this year. So, we thought it would be a good time to test out an amusement park with Ava! She did great. She wasn't scared of any of the rides and she did really well waiting in lines.   She also liked getting to meet the Peanuts characters and watching their dance show.  It was soooo hot that day, she really was a trooper.  She was sad when we left but passed out on the car ride home.  She was exhausted!

So cute! Such a big girl.

This was Ava's FAVORITE ride! She rode this at least 10 times.

Dancing with the Peanuts gang.

If you are looking for Ava on the roller coaster, she's in car 4.  You can see her waving!
