Ava's 4th Disney Dance Party

We did not throw a birthday party for Ava this year. We thought when she turns 5 next year that is when we will have another special milestone celebration for her with a group of friends. This year we decided to take her just Disney California Adventure for a little bit.
 Her morning started off by getting out of bed to find a living room table full of presents and balloons
Of course she wanted to start opening her presents up right away
Every time she would open one she would say OH WOW!! THANK YOU!! I have some pretty funny video of it. She got a lot of Minnie Mouse stuff ...SHE LOVES Minnie Mouse! She also Loves Mickey Mouse is her Favorite show! After presents Gabe made us Mickey Mouse Pancakes than it was off to the park.
 We always park at the Toy Story lot when we go to Disneyland. On the shuttle everyone sang Happy Birthday to I really wish I would have video taped that..the look on her face was priceless!
 As soon as we got in we got her a very special Birthday Button to wear. She is so funny too...she could not leave the house with out her clutch and wanted to wear her new Minnie Mouse Heels. She actually wore them all day too!
 After a few rides we took her for a Birthday Banana Split at Ghiradelli!

 Parker Had the Chocolate Shake
 Then we did MORE rides until it was time for "her" Dance Party

 We also did the Bug's Life movie
 Ava Actually wore her 3D glasses for the first time and watched the movie which FREAKED her out on some scenes...she was on my lap and hiding her face in my shoulders..just for a couple parts and than she was laughing and enjoying the show..afterwards she said WOW That was FUN...but when I asked her want to see it again she swiftly responded a firm NO!
 Afterwards we headed to the Disney Dance Party Where Ava danced and danced with several Disney is basically a dance club for kids...she was in PURE heaven..

 We told her it was her Birthday Dance Party!

I could tell after a while she was ready for a nap and Gabe had to go to work anyway so off home we went. Where I made her a special dinner and we watched tv and called it a early night since the park worn us out. All in All a fun day for her and Us!
A couple days later my gal friend Thelma and Toni came over for some wine and surprised Ava by coming in with a lit ice cream birthday cake and singing Happy Birthday to her. She was so surprised and excited. Thelma also brought her a pretty nice gift bag full of adorable clothes! That cake too by the way was pretty damn delicious!
