Five years ago my little girl looked like this.
Then somehow time turned into a blur and this is what happened!
I blogged about her 2nd birthday here.
I blogged about her 3rd birthday here.
And here she now is, posing on her 5th birthday just a few weeks ago.
We organised a late afternoon get together with her cousins, a few friends and a few adult friends. Before they arrived we had a little work to do. Her sister Ariya helped her tie up some balloons.
Of course running around with them was much more fun.
Seerung was busy in the Kitchen.
Finally (for Marisah) her friends arrived.
We sent the kids off to play on the lawn while the adults caught up on the balcony where we could keep an eye on them.
Muddy the wallaby (blog about him coming soon) was a bit confused and didn’t know which group to hang out with. He even attempted a dash inside but thanks to a friend (who incidentally was wearing a Wallabies rugby jumper) a well timed tackle put an end to that.
We let Jacob hang with the cool group on the balcony.
It was only a matter of time before the kids gravitated to the lake.
Some of the bigger kids took a boat out while the little ones got a magic carpet ride.
In between all the fun we managed to round everyone up to see Marisah blow out her candles and tuck into Seerungs marshmallow and chocolate mud cake.
It was a great afternoon and Marisah had a blast. I only wish that it took 5 years between now and when she has her 6th birthday! She is growing up way to fast!
