4 Years Old!

Ashley turned 4 on April 3rd!  She was so excited because this would be her first friend party.  She talked about it for months.  She really wanted to have a princess party, but wanted to invite the boys from her preschool class.  So we decided on a Royal Party with Princesses & Princes or Knights (whatever the boys decided) :) .
 First thing in the morning she put on her birthday hat from preschool complete with awesome bedhead.

I found a great deal to rent a bounce house for 3 hours.  This was the main entertainment, but I was surprised at how many were a little timid to jump.  Most of them warmed up to the idea after a little time.

The kids decorated their own crowns or tiaras.

Then we went on a treasure hunt where they found candy and a wand or sword at the end.

Ashley was sure spoiled with all the presents.  

 Found this cake idea for a castle on the internet and had to give it a try.  Ashley loved it! My mom was still here after watching the kids while Kevin & I were in San Francisco.  She was tons of help and actually did most of the frosting and decorating of the cake.

Four things about Ashley:

1. She loves to sing and dance.  Most of the songs she sings are her originals.

2. She is sassy as can be and gives her dad a run for his money when he teases her.

3. She loves to color and draw.

4. She LOVED preschool and wishes that there wasn't such a thing as summer vacation.

We love our Ashley and her zest for life!
