It wasn't a huge to-do, but we did a swim party at True Blue Watersports (indoor pool). Gianna's always wanted a pool party but I refuse to have it at my parents house -- too much stress.
My sweet friend, Deborah, made her this mermaid tail. Can you believe how precious!?
I missed a few late-comers, but I'm glad I got shots of most of the kids.
Gianna asked for a layer cake for her birthday, so I did a trial run the week before. Good think because the cake flopped. I squished it in a bowl and froze it so I could still practice my icing technique. It was so good. I'm making bowl cakes more often!
The actual cake (which I ended up not bringing to the party) was four layers high. It was so good!
I need a little more practice, but it turned out to be really pretty.
On her actual birthday, I took her for breakfast at McDonald's.
I took her to get a mani-pedi because I had an unused gift card. She had a ball.
I'm NEVER doing that again. She went swimming that afternoon and most of the polish came off. What a waste. I learned my lesson.
Her nanny took her shopping for a maxidress that she's wanted for so long.
That's one lucky little six year old.
