Amanda couldn't bear to leave any of her friends off her party list and I our bank account couldn't bear to pay for a full-on birthday party, so we compromised and had a birthday playdate at the park! It went well and she had a great time with her friends! Unfortunately I ran out of room on my camera to take very many any pictures. :(
After the party we took Amanda to Build-A-Bear Workshop to pick out her birthday present. She picked out this cute puppy. She's totally in love with it and can't wait to get a real puppy...
The birthday gift that totally sent her into squeal-mode was from her Grandpa Lee --- her very first camera! She's loving being the other photographer in the family and has already taken over 300 pictures. She's started her own blog and will be posting her photos soon!
Amanda also received some birthday money and gift cards that I am hoping she will use to buy a camera case. Though I have a feeling Toys R Us is calling her name... sigh :)
