My Niece's 4th Birthday Party

Friday evening we celebrated my niece’s fourth birthday at an amusement center called Triple Play. They have bowling, arcade games, rock climbing and a small indoor water park with slides, wave pool and kid’s play structure.

I really had fun picking out her birthday gift this year. Since there would be swimming, I decided to get her something for the water. I was thrilled to find a waterproof Little Mermaid doll with a miniature inflated inner tube and a larger matching inner tube at Toys R Us! I took everything out of the packaging and arranged them in a summer themed gift box along with a set of assorted plastic water creatures and some suckers.

Then I covered everything with pink shredded paper, put the lid on, and tied with a ribbon.

The card I gave her turned into a cake when opened!

Here she is opening our present…

And here she is wearing it! She loved the larger tube and kept it with her most of the time she was swimming.

What sort of creatures do you think left these tracks at the water park?

Dinosaurs of course!

My new nephew (brother’s son) who is only about 6 weeks old.
