naomi's 5th birthday - princess birthday cake

I'm finally getting around to posting about Naomi's 5th birthday! We had a great time but we didn't do the whole BIG party thing since she had one last year, but I think we did a good job of focusing on her and making her feel special. The kids birthdays in our house usually start out with daddy taking them to breakfast. This year was no exception. So Greg and Naomi went to Perkins while I stayed home with the little kids (maybe I need to get in on this deal too and alternate years with Greg).

Then we went to Donnell Century Farm with our neighbors. The kids had a GREAT time. They started with a little learning about the farm with a maze of sorts. They had to go to different barns and collect items that farmers would and eventually take it all to market and sort it out. They got to see some animals, play on a huge pile of rocks and huge tires...and we all got to go through a corn maze and play Maize-opoly. The best part was the big slide they have there that even the adults had a great time enjoying. They also played on hay bails and in a large sandbox filled with corn instead of sand.

Micah and I baked the cake on Thursday and everything got decorated on Friday and then put together on Saturday right before lunch. You can see a small tutorial of the cake at The Trendy Treehouse blog on Saturday morning. But here it is...
