Emma is ONE

We had a Birthday Extravaganza for little Emma-lee!
We didn't have a party for her, but we did have 3 full days days of FUN
On Thursday (her real birthday) we went to a play place called My Gym.
She played with her sister and brother and some other kids too.
Emma loved the big balls to roll around with and bang on.
She even really loved being in the ball pit (as long as no one jumped in on top of her).
That evening we were able to go see Thom on post which we weren't expecting, so we celebrated our baby girls special day with her favorite thing - Ice Cream!
The next day we went back to post pick up Thom and we played at a really cool indoor playground (sorry no pictures). Then we had dinner at Red Robyn where Emma was sung to by the waiters and got more ice cream and she loved it!
Saturday morning was finally time for presents!
Luke got her a little Snow White doll which she loved right away.
Daddy got her some clothes which she doesn't really need, but they are cute anyway. She also got a super cute cabbage patch from Grandma Jo and some other fun toys form the rest of us as well as a big play kitchen for all of the kids to play with (it even has a BBQ on the other side with fire for Luke).
After presents it was time for attack the brother games at an indoor jump house place called Monkey Joe's.
We all had a good time and Thom was able to help the girls slide down the big slides and race Luke down some slides too.
Emma loves ice cream so we thought about doing an ice cream cake for her, but decided to go traditional, and I'm glad we did because she dug right in! Luke and Leona were both hesitant about getting messy, but Emma has a super sweet tooth and just went for it.
She wore herself out with all that cake...
and playing... and presents... and ice cream!
Happy Birthday Emma!
We love you so much and can't believe that you are a whole year old now
and still the size of a 6 month old!
Here you can see her dive into her cake
