Then we spent part of the morning having breakfast and playing with her new presents.
She had decided she wanted to do Busch Gardens for her birthday and Chris' sisters (whose birthday is the day after Eleanor's) and Gaby decided to come, too. Eleanor decided to wear a fancy dress to Busch Gardens that she got for her birthday and lots of people stared at her, but she did look quite cute!
We came home for a nap and then all her friends came over for a water-themed birthday party that evening. We had a sprinkler, slip and slide, baby pool, water table, and water balloons. There was a surprisingly long water balloon fight as the kids took a little while to figure out how to throw and break them. Our yard looked like confetti the next day :)
We also grilled hot dogs, had mac and cheese, watermelon, and birthday cake.
After all her friends went home, Grandma surprised her with a bike with training wheels that she has been practicing on this week.
We were very thankful that family could come down to celebrate this sweet girl, too!
Overall Eleanor had a great, but busy, day. She was exhausted and slept well that night! Happy birthday to our THREE year old!
