My niece, Kali Claire, turned 3 on Friday! I will be out of town next weekend during her birthday party so I decided to take her somewhere for her birthday instead of giving her a gift. That child has a ton of stuff and doesn’t really need more toys, so I like to create experiences. I personally would rather have experiences for my birthday, so hopefully likes them too. She is only three so she might not even remember, but that’s ok.

I decided to make her a Princess for a day and do some Princess type activities with her. There is a place in the Woodland’s called Sweet and Sassy that is for girls to get beautiful . I got Kali the birthday package which included a manicure, pedicure, hair up-do, keepsake photo and a cat walk. We also added on a make your own lip gloss station too.
We got there a bit early because Kali tends to want to observe for a little while before jumping into an activity, especially if it is busy. That day there was hardly anyone in the shop, so she was excited from the get-go. We had about a 30 minute wait (which is forever in 3 year old time) so we looked at all the stuffed animals. All. Of. Them.
Then we walked the catwalk because, why not? I think this is one of my favorite pictures of the day. :)
When it was time for Kali to go, she was able to pick a nail color. She chose pink of course because that is her favorite color.
Then it was time for her feet to soak in the tub. I love how relaxed her face is in the picture. Too cute. They put some lotion on your hands and then put them in oven mitts (with a plastic baggie) while they work on your feet. She was also very excited about getting a toe ring.
Next it was time for nails!
Then hair and a tiara with glitter! When Kali really likes something she crosses her arms and has a little smile, so I knew she really liked how she look with her tiara.
I think her hair turned out so cute with a flower look.
Next was the lip gloss making station, which really was just the employee putting things in a container and Kali stirring it. I was kind of disappointed in that, but I guess since she is three she couldn’t do much. I just figured she would have more of a hands on experience.
After we left, Kali promptly fell asleep in the car. I was going to stop at my sister’s work to show her off, but when Kali falls asleep we don’t dare wake her! :) haha.
I forgot to mention my grandmother (Kali’s GG) came with us. She likes to get out of the house and do things with us, so I figured it would be fun for her to join us.
