A Labor of Love

Posted September 7, 2015 by tambarr1 in family and home / 0 Comments

Five years ago on Labor Day, I gave birth to a sweet baby girl. So this weekend was pretty special because we got to celebrate the 5th birthday of our little handful, Tamia. I wanted the day to be fun filled, so keep reading to see how this Mama made the day a success!

Here’s the Rundown

Our day of fun began with a show at the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. Since Tamia has shown a real interest in science, I thought it would be great to take her to see a star show, and it was pretty cool. We saw “One World, One Sky” (appropriate for 4&5 year olds, and some adults, lol). The visitor center took very good care of us. Be sure to visit this local venue for some family fun!

Sesame Street’s “One World, One Sky”

The kids playing in the moon sand was one of the highlights. 
We enjoyed it so much that I looked up the recipe

Tamia enjoyed herself!

Next up: Mellow Mushroom 
After the show and exploring some exhibits, we headed down W. Franklin Street 
to replenish and celebrate at Mellow Mushroom, and let me tell you, the scenery was perfect!

We had the patio pretty much to ourselves, which was lovely. 
We ate lunch, b-day cake, and opened presents!


Tamia was over the moon!

Destination #3: Kidzu Children’s Museum

The day did not end here! We headed on over to Kidzu Children’s Museum 
for some creative play. I am amazed at how few Chapel Hill natives know this place exists, which is really a shame! The kids had a wonderful time! 


It’s amazing how a little person can change the direction of your life and make you forget what life was like before she came on the scene. It happened for me the first time in 1995 and again in 2010. I can only thank God for giving me such gifts. 

Thanks to all of our family and friends who joined in celebrating our sweet girl’s 5th birthday. She loved each moment of it!
