My little girl turned 3. Correction, my BIG girl turned 3. She asks me sometimes, "Why did you call me 'baby'? I'm a big girl." For the longest time she would tell me she wasn't a big girl, she was a little girl.
You'll always be my baby.
The cake was a 4-layer strawberry cake with chocolate frosting. And I made the mistake of decorating it with spray-can frosting. Next time I'm sticking with the piping bag! I called the cake a 'chocolate-covered strawberry cake.' It's entirely from a box.
Incredibly simple decor:
~ Home-made banner
~ Helium balloons
~ Some pictures of the guest of honor displayed around the piano, which served as a present table
~ Potted gerbera daisy that vaguely matched the color scheme & will be relocated to the flower bed this weekend
The color scheme was inspired by the cake.
We 'feasted' on grilled pork tenderloin with fruit & veggie kabobs. The pork spent a day soaking in a mustard-ginger-lime-pineapple-garlic marinade. The kabobs had cherry tomato, onion, pineapple, and banana. I also grilled up some drumsticks. I must have been incredibly hungry by the time everything was ready because even the simple salad (romaine, spinach, tomato, cucumber) tasted amazing!
I was in charge of the food, while Dad provided the entertainment. Here he is, leading a "canjo" sing-along. Other activities included:
~ Chicken wrangling
~ WiiSports tournament
~ Snake handling
Don't you wish you'd been there?!
