Happy Birthday Lily!

My little girl turned 5! I can't believe it has already been 5 years since Heavenly Father blessed our family with our only girl. She has been my angel from day 1! I adore this little princess! And I'm so thankful that we get to have her in our lives!
I asked Lily what she wanted to do for her birthday and her reply was: "I want some barbies, a chocolate cake, and my family!" I said "You don't want a party this year with all your friends?" She said "Nope, they will eat all my cake!" HA!!! You don't have to twist my arm! A family party is fine with this mamma! Since I know "friend parties" are almost a must every year from here on out!
We have lived at Ocean Breeze Water Park all summer. And of course on her birthday that is where we spent the majority of the day. Before we left, my friend Kate (who also has passes there, and frequents the park with us also) showed up with her kiddos and her famous cupcakes! When I say famous, I don't mean a particular flavor is famous. She is just known for her love of making cupcakes, their amazing flavors and how delish they are!!! This time she made Smore's cupcakes.
They start with graham cracker crumbs on the bottom, chocolate cake, middle has marshmallow filling. Topped with graham cracker butter cream frosting, then marshmallows, and chocolate on top of that!!!! Sooooooo good! Almost too good! ;)

Make a wish!
The "digging in" starts!
Ashton eager to dive in!
Preston
Jake loving every bite!
Cute little Paisley!
Parker loving it!
Lily digging in! This girl LOVES cake!
Ethan is known for not caring for cake too much, but he actually ate his entire cupcake and that is huge for him! So they must have been good!
LaLaLoopsy! Thanks Kate!

Every mother needs a daughter. What a cute one Lily is. Yeah, more Barbies. My grand daughters love to play with mine when I sometimes let them.
