Taylee's 5th Birthday

Taylee's birthday this year was a little different. Aaron was going to be gone on her actual birthday so the Sat. before we went to Rexburg Rapids and Ryker and Conner joined us. I think they had a great time swimming and floating the lazy river.

I told her she couldn't have a party with friends EVERY year so this year she decided to have Ryker and Conner come for a sleep over. They stayed up late watching movies, eating treats and playing. They woke up Sat morning and it was Tay's real b-day. We had a yummy breakfast and then opened presents.

Taylee got spoiled again. Thanks to grama, gram and cousins for the gifts.

Including this one. LOL! Capt. Jack Sparrow in the house!

Looks even better with princess skates!

After presents we went to the water park to play for a few hours. Taylee got hurt and spent a big chunk of her time too afraid to get wet cause she didn't want her band-aid to fall off, crazy girl, go have fun!!

And eventually she did...

On Sunday we went to Lacey's for our family party and to have cake and ice cream. Yes, our patriotic child wanted an American Flag cake. Don't ask me why she likes the flag so much, but I can't complain, this was the easiest cake iv'e made in years and the kids had fun helping decorate it.

We got Aaron on the phone to help us sing.
Taylee is an awesome little girl. I would never have imagined getting a girl quite like her, but I wouldn't trade her for anything. She is such a good girl who tries so hard to do what is right and be obedient. She likes order and follows rules to the T. She makes us laugh a lot and I'm so glad that she is healthy and happy and in our family. Happy Birthday girly!
