Sophie’s 6th Birthday Party

Sophie turns 6 years old this Saturday, November 22nd. But she wanted her cousins to be able to attend her party and next weekend is just too close to Thanksgiving, so we all went to Portland and celebrated Sophie’s 6th there.

First we went to the Portland Children’s Museum.Sorry it's on it's side! Just getting into the children's museum.

Lillie got a flower painted on her face by Allison, Haleigh's mom, but she didn't understand that she needed to turn her head in order to show it off.

The girls made it completely impossible for the salmon to reach the bottom of the table.

This was hilarious-- the girls used the hand dryers to dry out their shirts -- inside and out.

Lillie moved in right away -- because they didn't design a door and she was the only one who could be lifted in, she got the house.

After the Children’s Museum, we went to the pizza party at Papa’s Pizza. Pictures of that to come soon!
