Yesterday Alexa had her birthday party at the Museum of Natural History. The theme was dinosaurs of course in pink and purple. The party was held in a private room then the kids got to tour the museum with their families. She had 19 friends attend. She really wanted a big party this year for her 5th!

This is not a very good shot of Alexa but I had to show the dress!

I loved when everyone joined in and sang "Happy Birthday" to her. Those little moments always get me! It was a great group of friends from her school, dance and old friends.

Enjoying the cupcakes and fruit.

The goody bags we made had a dinosaur craft in them, playdough, a healthy treat and those old dot candies. It was so funny because I had so many kids come up to me and ask "Is this candy?" I guess they aren't used to "old school" candy.

Opening gifts with her friends all around her. It was a super fun birthday!!!

Wow...looks like you had a good turn out for the party. Good thing you are used to handling 18 kids at a time from the good old teaching days. Hope she had a great b-day!
