We woke her up singing the birthday song and showered her with birthday love all day.
She is such an inspiration to me and I love her so dearly that my heart aches with pride as I watch her grow into a beautiful lady.
K has taught me so much about life and about love.
I treasure our moments and marvel at her amazing talents and confidence in life. I wonder what she will be when she gets older, if she will have kids, if she will travel, if she will find love.
I want to share the world with her and teach and guide her as much as I can before she goes off into the world for herself.
We were lucky and spent the morning on a class trip to Kin beach.
I love wathcing all the kids explore and hearing them laugh in the distance.
I remember my 6Th birthday clearly, I look back fondly as I hope she will too.
We celebrated her day in Hawaiian style and went all out.
To set the scene, we made a path with wood rounds around our front yard and had a entrance that you walked through cornered with Tiki torches.
Upon entering K gave each guest a Lei, a skirt and a flower hair clip.
Our dressed up guests snacked on fresh fruits, nuts and beverages native to the islands and later we had fruit slushies to cool down with.
We had a scavenger hunt, a hula dance off, played with beach balls and hula hoops and got out the limbo stick.
All in all everyone had tonnes of fun.
There was even a palm tree, pineapples, surf boards and patio lanterns to complete the decor.
I found a radio station from Hawaii that streams online and so we were able to listen to wonderful native island music that I could never have found otherwise. That really was the icing on the cake.
Ah yes!!! The CAKE!!
So we spent hours, and I will not confess as to how many, creating a massive volcano and single cake hula girls.
We were not able to access any dry ice so we had to settle for sparklers but it worked out just fine.
K and all the guests were ecstatic.
Each girl had there own hula girl to enjoy and that was a real treat.
After we opened all of her wonderful gifts each girl went home with their costumes, the ladies from their cakes and some little trinkets to enjoy.
I think it was a fabulous party and am already planning the next one.
