Happy Birthday Aliah!

I'm 2!!!

We had such a fun time for Aliah's birthday. It was just full of fun activities. We started by having mac and cheese at Max n' Cheese this kids food restaurant. (No one bother going, it's lame, but we had never been there.)

But the play area was fun.

We had big plans to go to the Children's Museum at the Gateway, but it closed before we could make it. So as a sorry alternative we went to Chuck E Cheese's.

Aliah rode this car 3 or 4 times. But she really didn't care about any of the games. She's still too young maybe. So we cashed in her tickets and s
he got a sucker and this pink hair extention.

We tried to get a nice family picture, but this is how it turned out. I think it's perfect though. Very realistic.

We didn't stay long because it was clear that Aliah didn't care much about being there, so we went to the park instead. She had such a good time. I have got to remember that kids don't care about fancy things, they just want to run around and have fun.

On the way home Aliah was so happy. She even sang Happy Birthday to herself.

She's the greatest! I'm so proud of how well she's growing up and how smart she is, and how beautiful and friendly she is. She's such a performer. It's so fun to see her grow and learn. She brings me just an unbelievable about of joy!
to my big little girl!
