It's always shocking when my oldest has a birthday and then I say, "I have a 9 year old!" It's crazy that the kids are growing up so fast! Anyway, it was a family party this year not a friend party...BUT I had a Groupon for Cowabunga Bay and decided she could invite one friend and she invited Brooklyn. I got to take the girls while Shawn stayed home with the rest of the kids. He's nice like that. :) We've never been to that water park before but it was a lot of fun! It's small and perfect for just a couple of hours. It has slides, a lazy river, a little pool, and lots of water toys. I realized that I hadn't been on a water slide in probably 10+ years! So that was fun for me! We all had a great time and it was fun to hang out with just them.
At first she just wanted a plan cake but then she though of waterslides and wanted a waterslide cake. Ok...how do I do that? Licorice! It worked out and actually stayed up!
