Mia turns 4!!!

Number 4 will go down in history as the Dora birthday. Dora cake, Dora poster, Dora presents, oh my. I threw this party together the night before so it was pretty ghetto, but the Mia and her friends didn’t know any different. Jasmine’s “dance party” was a hit, and who doesn’t love cake and presents? That’s all they care about anyways! Van “the zombie” even joined in the fun and Mia’s birthday was the best day ever in her eyes, so it’s all good. Happy Birthday sweet Mia we love you!

4th of July

The kids had a fun filled 4th of July starting off with jet skis and swimming at the lake, ending with the fireworks show (Van’s favorite). Fred and I had to take shifts since jakey was sick so there aren’t any pics from the lake, but here are some pics of the night crew at the fireworks show…4th

Have I ever mentioned that I absolutely adore this girl? Every single frustrating challenge that comes with a 3 year old, melts away when she looks at me with those beautiful blue eyes and says, “Mom, I love you.”

Mia, please don’t grow up. IMG_8890editIMG_90591
