Gabriella's 4th Birthday

On July 28th, Gabriella turned 4 years old! She is obsessed with all things blue so we turned it into a little *frozen* birthday, and she loved it!

She had a donut for breakfast and then opened her gifts before we headed....

downtown Chicago for the day!

We started by exploring Millenium Park and playing at Maggie Daley Park. This was our first time at this park and it was awesome!

We headed to our favorite pizza place-Giordanos for lunch!

2/4 with their eyes open haha

We met up with some friends who were in town and then walked down Michigan Avenue to the Water Tower Place so we could try this out...

It was amazing! The cookie dough is really rich so the smallest size was perfect for us to share. 

We headed to Build-a-Bear so that our stuffed animal lover could make her own. Of course, she picked out the ugliest one #yesmommoment

And then we walked around a little to kill time while Manny waited for the elevator (thanks to having a stroller). 

We spent a good 7 hours in the city and had a blast but were definitely ready to finish the celebrating at home. 

A few days before Gabriella's birthday we celebrated with my parents before they left for vacation. We ate dinner together...

and then my mom and I took Gabriella to get a manicure and a pedicure. She LOVED both!

As always, we had a blast celebrating our sweet Gabriella Reese turning 4!


  1. Happy Birthday to your little one! It looks like she had a blast, and that cake is so cute.


  2. What a fun summer! I hear you--so hard to juggle blog work in the summer!
