Grote celebrates fifth birthday
Raegan Grote turned five years old on Sept. 3. She celebrated the special occasion with a week full of activities.
On Sept. 1 she enjoyed camping with her family and several friends. Kim Gamm prepared a cake to celebrate Larissa Gamm, Cameron Gamm, and Raegan’s September birthdays.
On her actual birthday, she enjoyed ice cream sandwiches with her mommy, friends, and teachers at The Learning Center. For her special birthday supper she chose to have pizza and soda at “Bob’s Pizza” (the B&B Tavern in Bowling Green).
On Wednesday she had a GiGi (Fern Grote) day. They started the day off with pedicures and manicures, then proceeded to Wentzville for a Raegan day of shopping. On Friday she also had a Grandma (Angelia Silvey) day. They headed to Hannibal for another Raegan day of shopping.
Then the big birthday bash was held on Sunday at Raegan’s house. The kids had a blast with a bouncy house and slip and slides. Melony Perkins (friend) prepared a Little Mermaid cake that guests enjoyed with ice cream.
Raegan is the daughter of Justin and Tabitha Grote, and the big sister of Braden Grote. She is the granddaughter of the late Phillip Grote and Fern Grote and Kenneth and Angelia Silvey; and the great-granddaughter of Hazel Standley.
