Let's Go Fly a Kite

Reese is turning three and we had her best friend over to celebrate. Knowing that in the future, there will be plenty of birthday parties with lots of kids, games, and goodie bags- I've embraced the idea of keeping things simple while I can. So while this weekend's festivities could hardly constitute a party (with just one friend), I did want to make Reese feel special. Since she is obsessed with Mary Poppins, I thought I would go with a kite theme and made kite decor/bought kites for the girls to fly at the park near our house. Connor and I stayed up until 1 am the night before getting things set up, and when Reese came downstairs that morning to see the kites on the wall and clouds hanging from the ceiling, she let out a breathy "Ooohh WOW". And just like that- it was so worth the extra effort.
(I had to laugh when I looked over and saw her chowing down on chips while she waited for her friend to arrive)
