Everly’s third birthday was simple and perfect – we celebrated with just our closest family and friends at my parents house on her actual birthday, which happened to fall on a Saturday. We kept the day easy with pizza, beer, and princess cake (of course) and the kid couldn’t have been happier.
That morning after breakfast and a few presents, I treated Everly to her very first manicure and pedicure at this little kids’ salon at the mall. It was the silliest thing ever but she just LOVED every second of it, and I can’t say I blame her. She picked out pink for her tootsies and sparkly red for her fingers, and giggled during her leg and foot massage. She also had her hair pulled up into a little braid, chose a pink glitter heart for her cheek, and picked out Cupcake-scented perfume. It was adorable seeing her so happy getting dolled up before her party.
Amelia decided to start walking that day, so Everly politely let her steal the spotlight for a bit, only to take center stage as soon as she put on her new roller skates and had Kyle take her for a few spins around the house. After opening presents and eating plenty of cake and ice cream, the sky cleared up and both girls ended up in the pool with Gobble (pictured, yes). We finished the day with a chicken sighting in the backyard (one of the neighbor’s escaped the coop and Everly helped in the rescue efforts). It was a perfect day for a third birthday party, fit for a little princess.
