Jordyn Turns 5!

We celebrated Jordyn's 5th birthday a day early by having our family and a few close friends to the Ankeny house.  We totally lucked out weatherwise!  We had all the windows and doors open and the sun was shining bright!  

Jordyn requested a Mermaid & Dophin birthday party, so we settled for an 'Under the Sea' inspired party.  We kept it simple--a text to guests, a call to the bakery, and a trip to the party store. Happy girl & happy mama!
