She got a lot of cool gifts and was thrilled with all her very big girl gadgets and clothes.
She got her favorite foods-Dim Sum and bubble tea- and had her favorite cake-chocolate icebox. My camera was all smeared up with somebody's fingerprints so I didn't get any of her blowing out candles :( but I got Sammy-Wei's reaction to not having candles to blow out. Absolute tears....it was so sad that the birthday gal allowed it to be re-lit for him to blow out!
And then the pool party! We had perfect weather and great friends for a few hours of swimming and food! Simone was in her glory with all her pals running and splashing with her!
Sammy had a blast as well and acted as the official party greeter!
The boys filling up their water squirters.
Cookie cake and popsicles for dessert. (see where Sammy is, right in the action....JieJie was so patient)
It was a super fun week celebrating my darling dumpling's 8th Birthday! And for the really big girl stuff...after her party she went with her grandparents for a week to D.C. to visit her cousins. Boy oh boy did we miss her - but she had an amazing time getting really spoiled and having some important "alone" time with family.
Time sure flies and now I officially have an eight year old little lady!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sweet QingLu! I love you!
