Some baby birds we found. Just over a few days you can see how fast they grew. One day I went out and they were gone! It took a total of two weeks for them to grow up and leave.



Snuggle time!

Happy 4th Birthday BROOKLYN!

I'm still in shock that my sweet baby girl is really four, Not only that but that this year is my last  with her before she is off to KINDERGARTEN!!!

Brooklyn it is hard to put into words how amazing you are! You are so smart, funny and kind. You are the greatest big sister to McKenna. We love you so much!

This year we decided to have a super simple and small birthday party for brooklyn. She only had two request, a list of specific friends (all of which we made sure to invite) and please have a bounce house. (which turned out to be HUGE yikes!)



As soon as Brooke told me she wanted a scooby doo party, I knew I wanted to find her a really cute and unique looking cake. I loved it, Melody did an amazing job! As soon as Brooklyn saw it she had to make sure everyone else did too. 





Party time!






Getting ready for her Big gift.


LOL McKenna's Cheese face cracks me up every time!


Even after 4 years she is still not so sure if she likes everyone singing to her.

Birthday Flowers

For the last few weeks anytime we asked Brooklyn what she wanted for her birthday, she would reply RED FLOWERS!! Lately Brooklyn has been loving anything to do with gardening, plants/flowers, and birds.

We decided to make a day of it and invite a few friends over to paint flower pots and plant their own RED flower! Brooklyn was so excited, she practically danced out of Lowes with her flowers. She has already started her very own flower bed in the back yard, and even remembers to water it most nights.

The day of our get together it rained so we had to move inside but Brooke and her friends Still had lots of fun.

Working hard.



The group and their flowers.

Truck Show

Our town put on a "Big Trucks" show. They had all sorts of trucks set up for kids to look at and even climb in.


McKenna's cheese face! lol.


My little love had to take a break from the truck just to pick flowers just for mommy!
Such a sweet memory.



By the end of the event Brooklyn was hungry and tired, this was the best of several attempts to get all the kids in one picture. (It reminds me of Oscar the grouch. Still I love my little grump!)

After we looked at the trucks everyone headed inside the library for some custard and a craft to finish up.


One small cup of custard and the grouch is gone!
