Today our baby girl turned 5 years old! We started the day with a special breakfast of doughnut holes. Later on in the day the party began! We had lots of friends and family come over to celebrate. Emma wanted an Octonauts theme, so that is what she got! We handmade some of the decorations, like the happy birthday sign and the hanging jellyfish. Uncle Eric helped with the decorations and food preparation, and everything went great. She even got her first pinata, which everyone got a few hits on before it finally unleashed its bounty. Our little girl is growing up, and we can't wait to see the wonderful girl she grows up to be!

While Ray was in Tennessee I had several days of quality time with my girls. One of the things we did was go to lunch together just the three of us. Our girls really enjoy Mexican food, so I took them to Casa Ole. I was able to get Emma to eat a cheese enchilda for the 1st time. They were super sweet, well behaved and we made a really nice memory together.
Even with all of the rain we had a great family fun filled time at our house. Ray did a terrific job of doing the BBQ in the rain. We had a feast of hamburgers, hotdogs, sausage, baked beans, and Ray even made homemade potato salad!
We give thanks to all past and present who give their lives to protect the freedoms of our country.
God Bless America!
