Lexi's 3rd Birthday Party




























































 so glad my parents drove up for the weekend!!

This summer Lexi has fallen in love with the cartoon Angelina Ballerina.
She watches it on Netflix and it was one of the first things
she said she wanted for her birthday theme..
I thought the theme would fade and she would move onto something different but luckily that wasn't the case! She loves watching the show & loves it when we turn on music that she can dance to!

Just yesterday she has finally said Angelina correctly
she always combined both Angelina & Ballerina together
and it would always come out something like angerina
her word ballet also comes out "allay"
sweetest words ever uttered.
We had a beautiful, hot, & sunny day for her party!
Lexi looked forward to it all week and my parents came in town just for it!
We ate, opened presents, and had cake!
We struggled lighting the candles due to it being windy
so we ended up using sparklers instead!

After cake our friends Maddi & Jaymie taught the girls a little ballet
they got to play with one of their party favors the ribbon wand!
Lexi was in heaven as she twirled around playing with all of the girls!
We are excited to put her in her first ballet class this Fall,
I am pretty sure she will love it, with the interest she has shown already!

  10. I adore absolutely everything about your blog. Your daughter is gorgeous, your style is amazing & your photography is perfect.

    Out of curiosity, what size lens did you use on this day? I recently bought a Nikon D3100 & I have the two lenses that came with the camera and I am still learning before investing in more.

    Hopefully one day I can capture pictures of my girls in this way.
