It's hard to believe, our baby turned five.
She's getting BIG.

Ironically, we started her birthday off going to see the movie, BIg.
Marti saw that it was showing at the Senator Theater at 10am, March 29th.
Who doesn't want to start their birthday off with Tom Hanks and popcorn?

We had all watched this classic before, a countless amount of times, 
but there was something special about seeing it, in Baltimore's historical theater.

I'm pretty sure this is Lylas favorite scene: 

After the movie, Lyla got to open her present.
 If you know Lyla, you know she loves American Girl.
Every year, a 'Girl of the Year' is released. This year, she is a dancer.
Lyla has asked for her nearly every day in 2014. She opened her up on her birthday.

Meet Isabelle Palmer:

After gifts she had a Hip Hop class. Her birthday doesn't stop her.
Hip Hop and you don't Stop.

I said a hip hop,
Hippie to the hippie,
The hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it
To the bang bang boogie, say, up jump the boogie,
To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat.

{If you were growing up anytime in the 80's, you just rapped that}

And of course, we headed to Red Robin for dinner.
She was spoiled with more presents, we enjoyed our food and  shared some good laughs.

Before heading home, we stopped by Toys R Us. Lyla had a gift card and was ready to shop.
After seeing how much fun Josh and Billy had with their walkie talkies in BIG, 
she decided she wanted a set for herself!

{Good Night Mrs. Baskin!}

Lyla had a very special day. 
She is a very special girl.

Happy 5th Birthday Lyla Grace!
