We all sat outside and chatted - and Katie Anne rode her tricycle around and around us, Flintstones style - while the pizza and fruit grilled, and then we went inside to eat it. We also had a big salad to go along with our grilled creations. My favorite pizza was the bbq chicken! Everyone agreed that the pizza bar is definitely an idea we'll be repeating - so good and so fun!
After dinner, we went into the living room and Gigi opened her presents. We got her a Pandora bead for her bracelet - Katie Anne picked it out herself. It is a tiny silver and gold birthday cake. We also got her a cute, funky bead bracelet that Katie Anne and I saw a few weeks ago. Greg and Jillian got her a book, movie, and a bowl from Pampered Chef. My dad got her a new pocketbook she's been wanting and a new blender, which she really needed!
Then, we went back into the dining room for a yummy dessert - homemade Ooey Gooey Bars and ice cream. I don't have a picture of my mom blowing out her candles because my camera mysteriously disappeared after the gift opening, and I found it while we were back in the living room watching the movie Gigi got (27 Dresses). We had such a fun time! Happy Birthday, Gigi!
Modeling her new dress and hat Gigi and Granddad gave her.
