Eden woke this morning to 29 (not 30 because we were ripped off) gold balloons hanging from her bedroom ceiling, why? because it’s her birthday!
We usually just throw balloons on the ground in the girls rooms for their birthday but Eden has come to expect that so we needed to mix it up a little, she was impressed.
Matt & I stayed up way too getting ready to celebrate our precious Eden so when 7am rolled around and the girls woke, neither of us were too thrilled to be getting up.
After a light breakfast & present opening we headed to Cinnabon for some cinnamon rolls; unfortunately we discovered too late that we didn’t have all the ingredients for Matt’s grandma’s cinnamon rolls which Matt makes for birthdays and Christmas, but we couldn’t let that stop us from getting Eden her birthday cinnamon roll fix.
For lunch Eden requested noodles (udon) from her favorite noodle places and then we came home to relax before heading bowling with our friends (who also happen to live in the same apartment block as us, so handy).
The rest of the day was meant to be filled with laughter, home made pizza & cake, with the above friends, unfortunately only minutes after arriving home from bowling, Clio fell off Eden’s bed and either hit her face on the wooden bed frame or the floor.
Whichever it was, it won. Clio had a bloody nose, some red scratches/marks and a little swelling and already some light bruising.
So it wasn’t exactly the day we had planned for Eden but she still had fun and is just so excited to be 5 and magically she can now reach the button for the 9th floor in the elevator which she is convinced is because she is now 5.
