Our family doesn't usually celebrate birthdays but instead we tend to celebrate birth weeks ,where the person gets taken out on several outings by different members of the family.
Besides the giant puppy she also got flowers and cupcakes.Then we started preparing for the big party.We had decided to do pirates and princesses this year.I was getting very concerned,because the weather was supposed to be questionable at best,but it turned out to be okay.A sprinkle here and there,but it was not bad and we had a lot of fun.
The kids and I spent a lot of time decorating.
We also had a barbecue and lots of food.
