Kandyce, Reigna, Clara and Rubi wait for their turn to bowl...


They all had so much fun bowling.  Here's Melia, Sophia and Makenzie running to grab a ball.


Everyone enjoyed pizza...


...and cake.  Chocolate cake of course because chocolate is Aiyana's favorite.


Ready to blow out the candles...


Singing Happy Birthday to Aiyana...


Opening presents...

A kids camera from her Aunt Alisa.  She brings that camera everywhere and I must say, she has taken some great photographs with it.


Aiyana had so much fun playing games with her friends.


Aiyana and Melia...



She got what she wanted...

Aiyana begged for this for quite some time.  I had no idea what it was until I asked a lot of questions to piece it together.  When I found out that it was $100 I told her no, but we decided to pool together the family and get her one big gift instead of each of us getting her something individually.  She was surprised and excited to say the least.


Here she is opening it.  You can see the look of awe in her face.
