While we had gotten to celebrate Gloria’s birthday with family earlier this week, today Gloria got to party with her friends at OmCulture. It was a fun-filled afternoon of gymnastics, dress-up, and ice cream cake!
As a special treat, Lauren also captured a classic video of Micah. Micah has always seemed to have a natural desire to dance. There are times that we’ll be listening to music or singing together and I’ll look over to see Micah’s hips moving subconsciously. This afternoon was another one of those moments, take a look for yourself:
Micah shakes it off
Taking a horseriding break from circus play
Our cute little Ezzysaurus
Time to cut the cake. It’s good to be seven!
I can’t believe our first child turned seven this week. We celebrated both before and after camp today. In the morning we gave Gloria her gifts after breakfast, and I think we did ok since she looked at me with a big smile and said “This was exactly what I wanted for my birthday. I don’t know how I could ever thank you enough!”
Good morning birthday girl!
Opening Micah’s gift of Boxcar Children
And three more from Ezra
Beanie Boos she expressed interest in the week before with Lauren
At camp her teachers had decorated her cubby, and then at Gloria’s request we had dinner out at Tutta Bella, home of pizza, meatballs, and gelato (who could ask for more?). Gloria seemed very happy today (and so grown up!).
Pizza (and meatballs and beet salad) time!
Chocolate has been Gloria’s favorite Tutta Bella gelato choice for many years, often paired with a meatball and/or parmesan cheese
