WoW!! What a day :) It was packed. I will post pictures another day. It started out with Ru opening all of her gifts from her family. The last gift she got to open was the "small gift" from us. A new bike !! ( well, at least new to her. It was $20 on craigslist) Anyways. Ru then headed to preschool with cookies in hand for all fo her classmates. I asked if they sang to her and she said no, they prayed for her :) Isn't that awesome !!! So much better than a song. After preschool, we headed to Mall of America to ride some rides. If you sign up they give you a free all day pass on your birthday. They also gave us some awesome coupons for a free dish of dippin dots ice cream, a free nestle toll house cookie and a buy one get one free from Noodles and Co. Of course Ru wanted it all and since it was her birthday and you only turn four once I let her indulge :) She had a lot of fun but we ended up leaving early because she was tired. After that we picked Isaiah up from Leah's and picked up a friend of Ru's for a sleepover. We then headed to Ikea for dinner !! After that we came home got in PJ's and headed for bed. Whew . . . I bet just reading this makes you exhausted !!! Ru had a blast and I am hoping she sleeps in :) All in a day at the Burdette household.

Ru's 4th Birthday Party !!!

This year Ru really wanted to have a Chuck E Cheese Birthday Party. So of course we said yes !! Ru is very very extroverted. ( Just like her mom !!!) So she is definitely blessed when she gets to celebrate and hang out with her friends :) I told her she could either have no party and a big gift or a party and a small gift. There was not even the slightest hesitation !!! All the kids had a blast riding rides and playing games. The pizza and cake were just afterthoughts.
