Anna Kate's 4th Birthday Party

Saturday morning we drove down to Pawley's Island for Anna Kate's 4th Birthday celebration.

First stop was gymnastics for her party with 17 of her friends that are her age or older.

They played and played. 

Even the little boys had a good time!

They jumped on trampolines, played in a big jump house with a slide....

Jumped in the foam pit over and over!

Then had some Barbie birthday cake!

We went back to my brother and SIL's home and she opened all of her gifts!  What fun that was!  All toys!

She played guitar for us while dancing of course!

On the back of her Daddy's big ole truck!

We went to Habenero's for dinner and sat on the patio.  Anna Kate drove us home through the neighborhood....not kidding!  We came back to watch Aladdin, have popcorn and snuggle!

The next morning I awoke to Anna Kate saying, "I can't sleep, I can't sleep...." over and over again.  Probably at least 30 times in 10 minutes.  Actually it was probably only a few minutes before this Auntie went to get her and brought her in bed with me!  SO cute, I loved it!

After breakfast out at Eggs Up, we came back and she played dress up.  Belle is her favorite, well it was yesterday.  Today it may be different! ;)  How about Kevin's pink glasses on his hat?!!!

Then she showed us how well she can swing all by herself now and how she can ride her, of course and with a whistle in her mouth!  She also skated a lil bit on her new Barbie skates she got for her birthday!
As I was telling Anna Kate goodbye, she asked when I was moving down there.  Then Kevin came in to tell her good bye and she asked him too.  Melt my heart.

What a weekend it was and we miss Clay, Emily, Anna Kate and pups Fin already!  Thank yall for having us!
