a monkey birthday

Little miss Lexi {who you have probably seen all over this blog, turned 3 recently.  THREE!  When I think about it, this little girl is pretty much my photography journey in a nutshell.  When she was first born, I was just getting my feet wet learning how to use my camera.  Now, three years later, I like to think I’ve come a pretty long way.  And so has this girl!  She is SO much fun at this age…I love every minute I get to spend with her.  So of course, her birthday party was no different!
She was ready to go, monkey in hand. :)  Once everyone arrived, it was play time.
Even the adults joined in on the fun…
(yes, I know that is the world's blurriest picture, but it's still hilarious if you ask me!)

The birthday girl even turned into a monkey herself!
After playtime was over, it was party time. :)  Lexi’s mom and I spent lots of time planning the perfect monkey party for this special 3-year-old…and I think it came out wonderfully!
Lexi came over the night before her party, and helped me bake up a storm.  We had so much fun, and she is such a good little helper!  We made: banana muffins, strawberry cupcakes, & chocolate cupcakes (all from scratch!).


What’s a monkey party without a monkey cake?!

I must say, I never thought I would be one to enjoy a 3-year-old’s birthday party :)  But Matt and I both had a great time!  There is just something about watching little kids run around playing and laughing that you can’t help but enjoy. I can’t wait to experience this with our own little girl!
