My little, baby girl recently turned 8 years old! This absolutely depresses me. :( How has the time flown? I am with her EVERY SINGLE DAY!
It was so fun and exciting to see how excited she was, so I got over my depressing mood REAL quick.
Thank you to all the Grandparents and family that sent her cards. She was thrilled. :)
For anyone that knows this little girl, they understand how wonderful this picture is. She adores to cook and clean. ( I know....really cool, huh?)
She wanted a Breakfast Supper for one of her meals, and she wanted to cook the meal for everyone.
(scrambled eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, and biscuits)
Instead of the typical cake and ice cream, she chose popsicles. ;) The Harper's came over to help us eat them all and gave her a cute Minnie Mouse watch. One of the gifts she bought with her birthday money was the movie, 'Soul Surfer.' So, they froze their lips off, as they enjoyed movie night! HA!
On another evening, our new friends, Jerry & Ruby and Mike & Janice took us out for pizza and had a small party for Emily.
It is indescribable how sweet it is to meet the most kind, loving and encouraging people on this road of life. The Lord has given us 'family' and a sense of community while living on the road. For all of us, it has been overwhelming, but wonderful!
Emily LOVES gymnastics, so for her birthday, I took her and Hannah to Jackson's Gym for their Day Camp.
Happy Girl :)
Have you ever seen how narrow a balance beam is?! A small foot can barely fit!
She flipped on the uneven bars.
They had smiles on their faces for 3 hours STRAIGHT. Two tired, little girls, ready to eat lunch.
So, we went to the World's Largest Entertainment McDonald's!
They have the typical McD's menu, BUT, they also have shrimp, chicken alfredo, enchiladas, pizza and more!
We sat in the 'rainforest,' listening to the waterfall.
LOOK at this fancy-smancy bathroom! Have YOU ever seen this at McDonald's!?
Upstairs, was a huge arcade room filled with the best of the best games.
It was a fun-filled, wonderful birthday for Emily. YEAH!
