Spring Break // hike to Rainbow Falls

we went to the smokies for spring break. our plan was to get out and explore the park as much as we could. we hiked to three different waterfalls while there. our first hike was rainbow falls. it was a very foggy and muddy day. the pictures show you a little glimpse of how beautiful it was, but they do not do it justice. i love that our kids are at the perfect age where we can start sharing things like this with them and hopefully they will want to do the same with theirs one day.

{ Valentine's Day Cards }

This is A's V-day cards from last year that I failed to share.  I have seen these done before and always thought it was such a cute idea. So we gave it a try and I think they turned out perfect!

Sparkle and Shine party...

 My girl had a very sparkly, shiny, glittery party for her Ninth birthday. 
It was so much fun putting together! 
However, I think I'm going to be seeing glitter for weeks! 

 The cake was amazing! It was a fresh strawberry cake with butter cream icing.

I had some of Avery's favorite appetizers and sparkling grape juice served in my champagne glasses. The girls loved it... almost a little too much! ; ) 
Then they got to sprinkle their own cupcakes at the "Sparkle Bar".

Each girl made their own sparkly crown out of pipe cleaners then they made a glittery canvas with their initial. I think they all turned out so cute! 

 After food and crafts the girls got to have a Sparkle dance.....

This party turned out so cute and the girls had a great time! I could not have pulled all this off without the help of my sister and my mom. So Thank you!!
