Libby Lu

Last week Kaylen's friend Rylee celebrated her sixth birthday by taking three of her best friends to Libby Lu at the Oak Park Mall in Overland Park. Her mommy rented a fifteen passenger van so that us mommies could tag along with our girls .

I used the hour and a half trip to rest up for the big day. Thanks, Nikki, for capturing this flattering shot of me :)

We enjoyed lunch at the Rainforest Cafe before heading to Libby Lu.

Then it was off to get glamorized at Club Libby Lu!

Party like a rock star!

Making sure it's just right :)

After all the girls got their makeovers they headed out to the mall to get their groove on. It was too, too cute!

Here they are dancing to "I got all my sisters and me."

What a fun day! I have to say that I'm pretty sure the mommies had as much fun (or more) on this trip. Can you tell that I was itching to get in on the action?

I realized on this trip, that since moving down here, I have had somewhat of a negative attitude about living in a "small" town. I miss so many things about 'city life' - late night Target shopping trips, Chipolte, Panera, the malls, Gymboree, just to name a few. Spending the day at a mall that I used to visit once a week with four fun moms and their girls was a wake up call. I wouldn't have had nearly that much fun had I gone to the same birthday party a year ago. It would have been just another party at the mall (or Chuckee Cheese, or Pump it Up, or _______ fill in the blank) but because it's not something we do all the time now, it made the day really special and exciting. This is one birthday party Kaylen won't soon forget. I hope Rylee felt the same way!
