Seven years old!

Aisling Abigail Frugoli turned seven years old this morning!
I can hardly believe it. She is growing up so fast! She has changed a lot over the past year, that's for sure. She is becoming such a kind and loving young lady, and I am so very very proud of her!

For her birthday she had, as always, a revolving door of ideas. Bounce house, rock concert, pool p[arty, craft project party... you name it, she thought of it. Last week though when we hit the new playground for the first time, she was sold. Playground party! That I could totally support. No mess in my house, and it's free. I am all over that! She also said she wanted to go camping and bring some friends with her. We also thought that was a great idea. That, however, will be another blog entry, as there are so many pictures!

We had her party on Saturday, because Al and Connor left for cub scout camp this morning. When we got to the playground, the kids of course ran off to play on the equipment. After a while they came back to work on their crafts. We found these cute little canvas bag kits at Iparty. The kids could decorate them with the fabric crayons included. They then used those to carry their loot from the Pinata.

Here's the group lining up for the Pinata. Aisling had her close friends, but no one from school. With her having a summer birthday it's always really hard to get a hold of new friends from school. This year her teacher wouldn't give out phone numbers, and I didn't remember about her birthday in time to figure out another way to get a hold of the parents. Well, I am sure she's going to survive this childhood trauma! Thankfully we have very special friends all around us.

(Connor, of course, is ever the joker).See what I mean?
(Random cute little sisters)

The pinata was a pull string pinata, which meant there was no bashing it with a wooden stick. Probably a good choice with this crowd. Each kid got a turn to pull a string and one string pulled the bottom out of the pinata. Great fun!
Then there was the cake; which I obviously did not make again!

Then, of course, there was gift opening.
One of her favorite gifts was from her best from of forever (in-utero?) Vaughan. Vaughan decided to make Aisling a gift. He picked out a t-shirt, hat, and little bag and decorated them with fabric markers. On the shirt is a picture of him giving her flowers. On the back it says "happy birthday Aisling, Love Vaughan". On the bag it mentions her 7th birthday. It is so cute and so very thoughtful.

From one of her other best friends, Nova, she got a cute beach bag, and another hand made gift. This one was a wave tube. She loves this thing, and fell asleep with it last night!
I so love that some of her friends took their time to make her gifts this year! So special! Her other close friend Braden bought her a science kit to make her own bubble gum! She was disappointed because she can't have gum right now with her orthodontic expander. However, when I let her know that in November (when it comes out) she could have a special gum chewing party with Braden, she was good to go!

Given that this was a Hannah Montana party, after the present opening there was lots of dancing. Dancing, of course, can very quickly turn into spotlight stealing by a certain older brother.

The kids played some more, and then we headed for home.
It was a super hot day, so we jumped into the pool.

This morning, her actual birthday, she decided that she wanted chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, so I took her and Siobhan and Wyatt out to the diner for a special breakfast.

Aisling as always I hope you have had a wonderful and happy birthday! We are so blessed to have you in our lives and we love you so very much!
