A celebration for Ava

Ava's birthday was August 21st and she turned the almighty 3!
The past 2 years we threw her a good size birthday party but since this year her birthday happened to fall during our trip to San Diego for Tiki Oasis we just did a small little party with family.
( These photos are NOT in order by the way)

Even though she did not have very may guests she still made out with some great presents
She was so happy for us all to sing Happy Birthday to her she sat in her chair singing it to herself as well with all of us.
Parker got her 2 more dinosaurs for her collection of dinosaur stuffed animals
This was a awesome Cookies and Cream ice cream cake from baskin robbins..tasty but man are those suckers pricey!
Ava could not WAIT for cake!
There was no other little kids to share in Ava's excitement..well except for Parker and James ..so we got some of Ava's favorite stuffed animals and put party hats on them and had them watch her ..she loved it!!
My mom bought her a bunch of clothes and got her some of those Sketcher Twinkle toe shoes...Ava kept stomping around making the led lights go off on her shoes...she LOVES these shoes! We bought them bigger too so she gets a lot of use outta them.
After she blew out her candle
Sitting with her friends
Her singing along to Happy Birthday
she just loved all her balloons and her party blower horn thing.
Other presents she received besides 8 outfits from my mom and twinkle toe shoes..a poodle purse she has been wanting, a few Disney figurine play sets (toy story and Alice in Wonderland) from the Disney Store, A pair of suede purple organic shoes, more clothes, a stuffed animal webkins cat, stuffed animal dinosaurs, a carry along Doll house for La La Loopsy and a 8 piece box set full of different La La Loopsy's for her doll house..These dolls are WAY to darn cute too. Looks like she is going to want ALL of them now.
Having a GREAT time
I really think though her favorite thing to play with...was ALL the balloons we blew up for her. You know how kids always want to have just a mass amount of balloons to hold..well we let her enjoy that for her birthday..for not having a huge blow out party I think she really enjoyed this little celebration for her.
Next year though we will have parties for the kids. I am thinking that every OTHER year may work out better.
