Happy Birthday, Gemma!

Gemma Lu turned 5 years old on May 11. She was SO EXCITED for this birthday. We had a few other family functions (which involved cake and/or ice cream) prior to her birthday, and she always thought it was her birthday. FINALLY, it was. She had a great time! We had a "Cars" theme, which she picked out. (I asked the balloon store if they had any "Cars" balloons. They said, "No. What else does your little boy like?" LOL) She surprised me by being very methodical in opening her gifts. She didn't want to rip the paper, and she looked at every gift very thoroughly. It was cute.

Gemma picked the cake!
