Yesterday was Laurel’s big day. It’s tough to be the youngest and have the last birthday of the year for the family. She was a trooper though and kept up with daily asking “It my birthday now?”
It’s always fun when a birthday falls on the weekend, and we can celebrate with everyone on the day of the actual birthday. After worship we headed to Pizza Ranch for lunch. Once everyone was filled, we headed over to a kite festival that was going on nearby. The kids loved seeing all of the gigantic kites. I think their favorite was easily the caterpillar that rolled back and forth on the ground over them. We definitely need to upgrade our kite collection though since our cheap, plastic Elmo kite just wouldn’t fly. (Thank you Brad for trying so many times to get it going!)
After our fun at the kite festival, we headed back to our house for presents and ice cream cake.
In the end, it was a full, fun day. We are so incredibly blessed with a super sweet girl! Happy 3rd Birthday, LJ!
