We celebrated Avalon Elle turning five over the weekend with a brunch with family + then an afternoon at the pool, followed by her first ever sleepover! Truly her best day ever, the timing worked out so that it was our first official weekend of phase two after quarantine and also the first day our pool opened for the summer, she kept saying that “everything is normal again because it is my birthday”. 🙂 It really was the first time things had felt normal in a while which made it all so much more special.
I had planned to forgo “parties” this year + wanted to let each of the girls pick a fun outing, but since we really weren’t sure how things would work out or what would be open, we had to let that go this time around. Instead, I ordered a few fun things + worked with a couple small shops to make the day feel festive for her, she requested “some blue + some sweets”, two of her favorite things!
One of the many things that quarantine has taught us is to appreciate the small things, what a joy it was to watch our sweet little girl have such a beautiful weekend with loved ones. We are so thankful for her! Happiest five Avalon Elle, we adore you.
