I had told the kids we would go out for special birthday doughnuts for Elise's birthday so we left early to drop Carter off at school and stopped by the doughnut shop. Elise had finally gotten hungry so she ate two oranges in the car on the way there. We were super disappointed when we walked in at 9:00 and they were already out of doughnuts, they don't close until 11 so I'm not sure what the deal was there! We loaded back up in the car and headed to a grocery store on the way to Carter's school and stopped there for doughnuts. I was bummed until I realized while driving that the doughnuts there would be cheaper so it was actually kind of a win! I let the kids pick out special drinks and we sat outside at tables they have in front of the store. With the doughnut shenanigans we were running a little late to school. We got there after Carter's class had already walked to their room (which was a first for us). Carter was very excited to lead us to his classroom, telling everyone on the way that it was his sister's birthday. Then he opened his classroom door and proudly announced to his entire class that it was his sister's birthday. It was adorable to see him so proud! From there Elise and I were off to the Children's Museum because she absolutely loves the tape tunnel/slide there! As we pulled in one of my friends texted me to ask me if I could pick her daughter up because she was having issues and was at the hospital. We pulled back out and headed to pick up Elise's friend. Instead of the Children's Museum we headed to a nearby park once we had her friend in tow. Elise had an absolute blast at the park, swinging on the bar above the slide and going down the slide only to immediately go back up the ladder and do it all over again.
We headed out to pick Carter up just as it was starting to get super hot. He was excited to see we had an extra friend with us and jumped right into the car asking her questions. On our way home we stopped by the store so Elise could pick out the supplies for her birthday cake and some special stuff for lunch. She went with macaroni and cheese for lunch and some pear flavored apple sauce. For her cake she chose a pink velvet cake with funfetti frosting and pink candies for the top. She was so cute, wanting out of the cart for a better look when we got to the aisle with cake. We dropped my friend's daughter off at home with her dad when he got home and then had a late lunch once I made the macaroni and cheese. Elise ate like a little beast, constantly asking for more. She ate all of her broccoli, most of her apple sauce, and 4 helpings of mac and cheese!
