Avery’s “Birthday Pouty”

    Today’s post is all about Avery’s Birthday Party! Or Birthday Pouty as she calls it in her cute little 4-year-old talk.

  The theme was inspired by some darling plates I found at Aldi’s for a dollar:

  WATERMELON!

  In going with the theme, we made Watermelon Cupcakes (recipe coming tomorrow) and Watermelon Lemonade!!!!  Both delicious!

  Sweet Destiny, wrapped Avery’s gift up in a GIANT leaf from a tree out front! Clever!

  Avery’s birthday celebration with family was a few days after her birthday.  She got to open her 3 presents from us, and a few Papa & Drea left, on her official day.  These next few photos, are from that day.

  Close your eyes for a big surprise……
