We treated her to ice cream at Sonny's Cafe.
After taking 2 years off from birthday parties due to Covid, this year we promised Meadow a party.
For her cake she requested a rainbow cake.
Unlike at her 4th birthday where I colored the batter naturally I went the artificial route this time.
I followed this recipe for Rainbow Bundt Cake.
The next day, Meadow decorated the cake with rainbow sprinkles of course.
Oh, just our almost 9 year old eating the extra frosting. They learned from their papa.
Brooke's getting really good at these food trays. First the Easter bunny and now a lion.
Meadow wanted a trampoline party this year. Actually she really wanted a party at our house, but our house is just not ready for entertaining yet.
Meadow had a Lion Guard theme to the party.
She had been planning this for months.
Soon our guests would arrive.
I hate the cheap toy party favors that are given out at birthdays. We chose little plants instead.
I wasn't sure I'd be jumping, but I in fact did go jumping since Theo was afraid of the other kiddos.
There was a couple other birthday parties here but not many kids out jumping.
Theo and I had a blast while Meadow ran around with her friends.
Someday we'll have to come back and go as a family. Apparently Davin and Dora do this.
I was just as thirsty as Meadow at this point.
I wasn't sure about the trampoline park idea, but it ended up being lots of fun.
I couldn't believe the kids jumped the full 2 hours.
Meadow won the mystery prize, except it was missing.
So she got a slushy in its place.
Time for cake.
Brooke outdid herself this time.
Sort of had a mushroom look, but still cool that it turned out.
The mushroom rainbow bundt cake was a hit.
Back at home it was time for Meadow's favorite part. Opening presents.
