Kulia's birthday this year was definitely a fun week of celebrating. It all started with her trying to convince herself that she was turning 5. On Tuesday, the day before, she asked me at least 5 times, "Am I really going to be 5 tomorrow, Mommy?" "When I wake up tomorrow will I be 5?" I didn't realize what a big deal 5 was. The morning of her birthday at 6:30 in the morning I hear her calling me from the stairs. When I went to ask her what was wrong she asked, "Am I 5 now, Mommy?" I replied, "Absolutely" and then she started jumping up and down. After, she raced to the door jam to measure if she had grown. She measure with her hand above her head and said, "I am 5 now Mommy, see!" She was ecstatic! Then we started the morning with singing to her and letting her open her gifts. Dad had to go to work, but he took a half day and we headed to Disneyland around 1:00. A large group, 35, friends from Corona Ranch were there. We met up with them and rode a few rides, but it was Kulia's day, so we went our own way and rode the rides of her choice. Our dear friends, the Tejada's, hung out with us at Disneyland and we all had a great time. After watching the parade, we decided to leave and have dinner at Red Robin. The Tejada's joined us and it was so fun!
