  1. Oooh! Do love that dress! Love the length!
    The price…a bit steep…just to buy it with no “special” events on the horizon this fall….so pretty tho’!

  2. I don’t know if you’ve found these on pinterest but when my son requested a dinosaur party for his 5th birthday his favorite part were dino eggs – you use coffee grounds and flour and put a plastic dino toy inside. It was easy (for me) and the kids all LOVED cracking open the eggs to find the dino

  3. I saw the Lion King last Saturday with my husband. I thought it was great and loved the digital animation and new voices, but there were scary parts for me at age 58, so I definitely think it is way too scary for a 5 year old!!

  4. Happy birthday to Maxwell on Monday! Good luck with the dinosaur party and I want to try those cookies. They look delicious!
