Happy 7th Birthday to Hailey!

We had the privilege of celebrating Hailey's 7th birthday a few weeks ago. She couldn't decide between princesses or fairies when we were trying to come up with a theme for her swimming party at the Riverfront Park in Arlington, OR. She ended up choosing both and was perfectly happy with her decision. Here she is with two of her cousins, Rosie and Lily.

It was HOT that day and the cake was literally melting so we didn't get to enjoy looking at it for long. Hailey really wanted this cake which was more expensive than the others we were looking at, so I told her it would be her big gift from us. She was so thrilled with it!

Our triplet from way back (technically KerriPaula is our cousin). She and a couple of her girls joined us last minute. It was great to see her and catch up a bit!
Hailey and Jessica - cousins having fun playing in the water together.

Look at all those cousins! My SIL, April, brought her two kiddos, too. It was really fun
Family friend, Gracia, got Hailey an awesome hand-made rubber band pistol in which to get back at her brother. I think she's in training for the next modest 007 movie babe.
Grandma Kay and Grandpa Ernie obliged Hailey by buying her some boy-type Legos so that she and Josiah could play together. She was very happy as you can see.

Hot, fun, exhausting day but I hope Hailey will always remember her 7th birthday. As the kids are getting older, their birthday parties are getting more simple, since I'm getting older, too, and running out of energy, LOL. It is all OK though. The most important thing is that I know my kids are aware that they are loved and are special and unique in the eyes of our Creator and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

God Bless,
Jackie

Happy birthday to Haley!! It was a fun party. We also enjoyed a lot on my niece’s birthday party. My kid’s were really happy to meet their cousins after a long time. The party held at the best kid’s party venue rentals. It was a blasting night!
