Wonders of Raising Aria

Saturday, July 29, 2006


We just got back from a birthday party for 3 years old girl. It was great fun. We've known the birthday girl since she was about 1, right after I joined the local mom's club when we moved to our current residence. The party was held outdoors in the backyard. The heat wave dissipated yesterday so it was perfect weather for an outdoor party. We partied hard on great middle-eastern food, juice and vanilla cake with strawberry filling. A., Aria and I were the last guest to leave because we had such a good time.
I swear, birthday parties are getting more and more elaborate. The birthday girl's parents hired an entertainer to do face painting, animal balloons and to DJ the party. There was a big pool, a big electric fire truck for the kids to ride on, and even a trampoline. Pretty snazzy. It almost feels like everyone is trying to top their previous birthday parties with bigger and better stuff. I personally don't even know if I want to throw Aria a party this year. It's a pretty stressful event. I'll figure it out as her birthday draws closer.

This is Cassidy, she's one of Aria's favorite playmates.
