birthday festivities

Anna's birthday celebration started Tuesday night when Pop-Pop and Nana hung out with us.

Anna now has her own big girl swing for the swing set.

On Wednesday morning, we broke out the birthday hats.


It wouldn't be an Anna birthday without her silly faces.

In the afternoon, we donned our bathing suits and headed to our favorite place (Branchwood Park) to romp in the creek.

Uncle Derek stopped by with some birthday animal crackers from The Old Dutch Cupboard.

Before dinner, we opened presents.

Anna regularly steals my pillow, so we gave her one all her own.

(Shoot. Maybe someone else wants one, too.)

Dinner time! Tuna noodle casserole, fruit salad, and edamame.

Cake balls for dessert.

Anna is exactly the same height as Heidi was on her third birthday.

Cousins called to FaceTime with the birthday girl.

Happy Birthday, Anna! We loved celebrating you!
