Happy birthday, girlie!

Amelia celebrated her third birthday today. What a day she's had. It's no wonder she is sound asleep now.

We started the day with her waking up really early and exclaiming that it was her birthday and she was turning three. We proceeded to get some food into her before heading off to have some splishy-splashy fun at Maylands Waterland. I've never been there so didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised that it was a pretty good place to have a little family party. It's nothing crash hot and definitely not brand spanking new BUT it is specifically designed for smaller children and most of the pools are shaded. Zach and Amelia loved it. Amelia was particularly intrigued by the spouts of water in the shallow pool. Zach on the other hand loved floating his makeshift boat (his flip flop) down the winding "river". They definitely want to go back there and I won't mind either. Next time, we'll remember to make different boats to race down the "river". Oh, and if you want to go there, please note that there aren't any showers. Just toilets.

After the play in the water, we went to Tina's for a surprise party. The look on Amelia's face of priceless. She was speechless and only managed a quiet smile. There were balloons, ponies, princesses and pink everywhere, and not to mention the beautiful cake Tina made for her.

Just look at that cake! Isn't it amazing? Looked and tasted absolutely yummy. Thanks Auntie Tina!
