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!

Look at all those cousins! My SIL, April, brought her two kiddos, too. It was really fun
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.
