A G.N.O. is what our little buddy Ava requested for her birthday a couple weeks ago when she turned 5. (as well as a trip to build a bear...) And let me tell ya, we had a ton of fun... as usual!
Good times are always to be had with Kim and Ava.
This girl cracks me up. She is one of a kind. Totally independent and very motherly :) You'd think she was turning 16. For reals... Kim and I always joke that if our kids were left alone, they could probably survive at least a week with Ava in charge.
We started with dinner at Noodles and Co.
Then it was pampering time at the nail salon.
And to end the night off we got dessert at Top it... and I forgot to take pictures there. The night was getting late, and the girls were getting whiny, but they still had a ton of fun!
The next morning we met up at Build a Bear to have even MORE fun! Taryn woke up and the first thing she said was, "It's Ava's birthday day!!!" Honestly, these two are more like sisters. Ava likes to tell people they are cousins and Taryn just goes along with it. hahaha
The Birthday Girl!
This is what she chose to wear... got ready all by herself.
Giving her new friend a bath
We named her fluffly
