I don't know how it is possible, but our baby girl turned FIVE in February.
While it feels like a while since she was a newborn, I swear she was just that little Dorothy yesterday.
We started off the celebration on her actual birthday with our traditional donut breakfast.
And after she enjoyed cupcakes and lots of birthday-girl attention at school, I surprised Ava with an early pick-up and a trip to see Moana...complete with popcorn to balance out all that sugar ;).
The next day, we celebrated our sweet and yet fierce little girl's fifth birthday in full superhero style.
Thanks to an Amazon Prime delivery, our little superhero was ready to roll.
For the location, Ava was dead set on Jumpstreet. While clearly not my top choice of local, it made her ridiculously happy, it was relatively cheap, and our only choice involved what kind of pizza to order. Win.
The kids spent the majority of the time running, jumping, and laughing. As it should be.
All of her best friends were in attendance, which made Ava so so happy.
Special thanks to Emily of Rockstar Bakeshop for the fabulous cupcakes!
For the party favors, I found the most amazing mask and cape sets for super cheap on Amazon (here and here). They lived up to the good reviews, and the kids loved them!
Happy fifth birthday to our Super Ava!
