Phoebe got to wear the birthday hat on her special day. (I have a mild obsession with fun hats...)
After lunch we had cupcakes and opened presents. Since Phoebe isn't a big fan of food in general (and I didn't want a big cake around the house that I would be tempted to eat) I didn't bother making a cake or cupcakes. (Remember this is the low-key birthday year) I bought a couple mini-cupcakes at the bakery and surprise, surprise she didn't eat them.
She kept trying to give them away... She did finally try it and take a couple bites, but she didn't eat anymore than that.
Then we opened presents. Phoebe has been loving Minnie Mouse lately so I was excited for her to open her Minnie Mouse stuffed animal from my mom. No surprise, she loved it! Minnie has been her constant companion from that moment on.
She also got a fun music set from my brother that she has enjoyed playing with.
That evening we did have another family over to eat burgers. The kids played outside in the baby pool and water table. It was a fun day celebrating Phoebe!
