Happy Birthday Gia!

My baby girl just turned 3. I know everyone says kids grow up so fast, but really, I have no idea where the time went! It truly seems like just last week that I gave birth to her.

In true Salerno fashion, we've been celebrating Gia's birthday for about a week. That's just the way we do things around here!
Of course Nonna and Papa flew in from NY so we could all celebrate together. We had a small birthday party while they were here, with a couple of Gia's friends.

We had an egg hunt for the kids, which was a big hit.

This is the cake Gia picked out all by herself. She had to have it!

So happy to have their Grandparents here!

Then, for Gia's actual birthday (April 12), we drove up to Wisconsin to the Wilderness Resort indoor water park. It was a first for all of us, but something we've been wanting to do for some time now. What a great time we had!

Ironically enough, one of Gia's little friends from dance class and her family were there at the same time as us, so we had someone to celebrate with (again). D.R. ran out and got cupcakes!

And of course, every girl needs a pedicure on her birthday. All the little girls got their nails done (by the Mom's) after cake, then it was off to play again.

Phew, that was a lot of celebrating and a lot of fun! I think we're all exhausted but it was well worth it. Our sweet baby only turns 3 once!

belated happy birthday Gia! That toe nails are too cute. It would be hard to do it with my daughter, she can't stay still but it's a good idea, maybe I'll do it on her birthday. Oh my, I can't even do my own lol.
