Spring Garden Party

Today Norah hosted a little Garden Party for her friends from MyGym to welcome Spring! 

Let me just start off by saying that this little hostess was on another level and that's even before all the sugar she consumed.

The 99 cent store was killing it this month and I found all of these cute, floral papergoods.

Having never hosted a party for toddlers, I planned a gardening activity for them to plant some seeds and decorate pots. They enjoyed filling the pots, and dumping the pots (especially Norah who later came out with a makeup bag to fill with soil).

Note to self: All kids need are bubbles!

We had a picnic lunch of flower shaped sandwiches and snacks inside on our "Grass"

Then some quick photos of the girls, said no toddler parent ever.

 Norah had so much fun playing with her friends and giving the sweetest pint sized goodbye hugs

Snow Day

Bright and early this morning we made our way up to Big Bear to give this girl her first taste of snow. 

For the last year or so she has been obsessed with snowballs and snow angels because of that scene in Beauty and The Beast and when she jumped out of the car her mind was blown!

"What do you think Norah?!?"

"Is Boo-ya-full!" 

And it really was.

I spent a lot of time doing research to avoid crowds and dirty, melting snow. I found a blog post about an abandoned ski resort and there were only a couple other people there. The snow was fresh, and powdery, and plentiful.

I can't believe this Winter wonderland was less than 2 hours from home! 
Norah had so much fun and we can't wait to go back to our "Secret spot".
