This post is a little late in the making since she turned 3 over a month ago but here it is! We had a very bizarre couple of weeks up here in Maine in the middle of March. The weather was beeeautiful with temps in the high 70's! So we were able to have a little BBQ out back for Ava's birthday party (never again, I'm sure!) I made her a huge 5 layer rainbow cake since she's obsessed with rainbows lately. I've seem a bazillion rainbow cakes floating around on Pinterest so I thought I'd give it a shot. It came out fantastic!..If I do say so myself.. :) I used this cake recipe which was soo delicious! *TIP: make sure you evenly divide the batter between all six bowls first, not as you go (duh) I ran out so I didn't have enough for the purple layer!! darn.
Ava got her first haircut before her party. She was actually really excited! She said she wanted it to be like Cinderella's hair. I told her how pretty it was when she was done and she said ".....it's not yellow..." hah
Her dada took her to Build-A-Bear in the morning and she got a little tye-dye bunny with a couple of outfits.
The cake was so big we only put a wee little dent in it so Joe took it to work for his co-workers! I always make him take the left over sweets to work so I don't sit here during the day and finish them off myself!
This was her big present. A Little Tykes trampoline from her Meme and Grampy. Now if the weather would get nice again she could actually use it! Here's Eli trying it out:
Our good friend took a few pictures of the big girl at a local park for us. (Thanks Joe!!)
