We had friends spending the weekend with us and they brought special birthday breakfast treats.

After a refreshing morning dip in the pool with friends, it was time to head out to the park to PARTY!!
|A 5 year old and her cake!|
Madeline requested a magician for her party--not sure where she got the idea, but we went with it. Brian was a bit skeptical, and I was worried about finding some random person off the internet, but it turned out to be fabulous. The kids were entirely captivated and I think the adults even got into it. The magician did great with the kids and really involved them in the show.
|Mesmerized by magic...|
|Kiran was the money making man, with quarters coming from everywhere!|
|Madeline gets a good laugh!|
|...and no magician is complete without a bunny!|
|Kids lined up to pet the bunny|
|This little girl was the bunny's biggest fan!!|
|The Birthday Girl, her sister and the magician!|
|Time for cake!|
After the party, and a nap for sister, we celebrated at home with the four of us. We needed to have a cake 're-do' after dinner, as it was too windy to get the candles lit at the park. She was happy to get the chance to do it all again!
|Excited about her special ring from daddy!|
|Super excited about the seahorse purse from Grandma and Grandpa James!|
|"Ahhh, a globe! I always wanted one of these!"|
|"Are you serious, a scooter??"|

It was a truly magical day. Happy 5th Birthday Madeline!!!
