Kim turns 5!

Kim turned 5 on October 9th. She got several cards from school and they sang to her. She loved going to school on her birthday.

I decided to make her a birthday cake that she would never forget. Well that is for sure. The cake took me just about 4 hours to decorate. I baked the cakes the night before and froze them to make it easier to frost. I had a great time making the cake.
Kim also had her first real birthday party. We had 3 friends come over and play. Kim asked if they could have Mac n Cheese for dinner. So we made dinner, opened presents, ate cake and needless to say played REALLY Hard.

We also went to the Golden Gate bridge when Misty was in town. These are my pictures from that day. Misty got some great ones too.
The girls were hanging on the rings while Dave pushed them. At Kim's school they had a fall festival called the Westival. Dave, Mike (our really good friend) and the girls had a great time. We donated cupcakes and Dave served for a while. They had the greatest time. I am wish I could have been there.
