Our Kj turned 3 years old yesterday, and it was a great day! The theme of the day was "fish," more specifically Nemo. We enjoyed yummy crepes with Nutella, whipping cream, strawberries, and bananas for breakfast, put Malia down for her nap, and then I took Kj to get her birthday present. As we pulled into the Petsmart parking lot, I told her we were getting her a fish. Boy, was she excited! She ran into the store and would have headed straight for the fish if she had known where to go. We purchased the classic betta, a blue and red male whom she named Benny, also the name of her cousins's betta in Montana. She met Benny this summer, and wouldn't consider any other name. It's funny to be a pet owner. I am now a mom that has a fish bowl to clean. He currently lives on our kitchen table, and Kj likes to scoot his bowl close to her so she can watch and talk to him.
After an early lunch, we headed off to a small indoor playground we rented out for the birthday party. I think everyone had a good time. J made his appearance an hour later with the eagerly anticipated birthday cake, a Nemo and Dory cake. He did a great job with them, I think.
We watched Finding Nemo that evening, she had a bubble bath, and went to bed. All in all, it was a great day.
