I'm a Big Kid Now!

I can't believe that my little girl just turned 4 this past weekend. It's crazy to me how fast the time flies because I feel like it was just yesterday that I found out that I was pregnant with her. But anyway, enough of the sentimental stuff--Lexxa had quite a busy birthday weekend.

First, we had her birthday party at Pump It Up in Morgan Hill. Everyone seemed to have had a great time. There are so many reasons that it's great to have a party at Pump It Up...let me give you a few:

1. Adults can also jump in the bouncy houses and play on the slides and obstacle courses. This makes it fun for everyone. It's a pretty good workout too, I might add.
2. The party coordinators help with setting up everything for you. This includes balloons, decorations, cake, plates etc.
3. The party lasts for only two hours.
4. The party coordinators also clean everything up...including loading presents and leftovers into your car so that you can still say goodbye to your guests!

I would definitely have a birthday party there again.

After her birthday party, we had another party to go to for her cousin Bella's birthday (her actual birthday was on the 31st). We took her other cousin Jada with us and it was very hot outside! Luckily, they had an inflatable pool/slide for the kids to play in. They could stay cool by getting wet. After that we came home and everyone was exhausted. The same night, my parents came over for a "birthday dinner" with Lexxa. Unfortunately, she didn't join us for dinner because when she started to eat, she was so tired that she almost fell asleep in her food. Brad would have let her so that he could get it on video, but I would let him :-)

On Sunday, Uncle David and Angela (David's girlfriend) took Lexxa to the batting cages as part of her birthday present. Angela just got her a new bat and helmet so she was ready to go! They got back from the batting cages and we had some time to relax and hang out until they took her to a San Jose Giants game that evening. She was a little nervous to go to the game, but she ended up having a really good time. She wasn't too sure about their mascot and she couldn't stop talking about him, but she got over being so scared. I'm sure it helped that she got to eat pizza, churros, ice cream--and they even had a jumpy house there!

So, she had a fun filled and exhausting weekend. To top it all off, she started preschool (or Kinder Readiness they call it) on Tuesday. She got to go with her cousin Sofia and she had a great time. But, I guess all of the activities caught up to her because she got sick and didn't get to make it to school on her second day. Hopefully this does not indicate how the rest of the school year will be for her!


  1. WOW! No kidding, Lexxa has quite the busy social calendar! Its no wonder she fell ill. Poor thing! Well, at least it was for a good cause (or a few!) I just love this little girl so much!!!!! XOXO

  2. So sad we had to miss the party. I'm praying that preschool germs and lots of sickness means less sick time in Kindergarten. Lexxa looks too cute and did she go through a little growth spurt since last month? She looks older. :(
