We got home and wanted to do a small party for Kaitlin on her actual birthday! We got the cutest cake and it was so yummy! Kaitlin was so excited and told the entire birthday it was perfect! She is so sweet!
Just a small party and it was perfect! We got Chickfila and had cake! And we had a ballon!

On our way back to Ohio we stopped at the Newport Aquarium! We wanted to do something fun fot Kaitlin's birthday and this was perfect! It was a huge place and it was crazy busy with spring breakers! We got tickets for the special Peguin Experince for Kory and Kailtin! They got behind the scene access with the peguins and had an amazing time!
They got to play with the peguins and Kaitlin asked tons of questions. And educated the group about the peguins from the show "Little Einsteins"! The peguins were very well behaved and one camped out at Kory's shin for at least five minutes. The peguins were ready to play and very friendly.
Kaitlin loved every second
Look at these cute little guys
And even got to pet them
Kaitlin loved this turtle.... He was 100 years old
Such a fun family day
Kaitlin was so proud that she was almost as tall as a shark
Kaitlin had the best time all day and taught so many people about the different animals!
It was an Experince we will always remember


Party time

Kaitlin started planning her 5th birthday party around Christmas if not before. She wanted it to be in Tennessee so all her family could come! It was such a fun day and Kaitlin planned the entire thing! We had a princess and pirate pizza party. We had party games and a piñata. It was so fun to have our entire family together and to hear so much laughter in one place. Kaitlin's cousins are much older than she is but they were the best sports playing all the games. We are so blessed to have them.
Cole played with Colin all night. He is so good with him.

It was such a special day for Kaitlin. I know why she wanted this party now! It was such a rare thing for Kaitlin to have her whole family around and it was the best. It was a wonderful way to celebrate turning 5!

Kaitlin is FIVE today! I can not believe she is so old. Five seems so much older than four!
Kaitlin loves animals and school! She talks a million miles a minute and is so funny. Kaitlin has the movie "Frozen" memorized and will sing the songs for hours! It is so fun seeing her little personality grow and change!
