Happy 5th Birthday Lila & Mia!

This past weekend, we celebrated all three of the kids’ birthdays. The girls’ birthday and Ethan’s birthday are only 6 days apart, so we threw one big party for all of them. With over 50 people (30 of them kids!), it was quite the celebration and both of the girls proclaimed that it was the “best birthday ever!”

The ginormous water slide we ordered to keep 30+ kids busy.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time now, you’ve watched my girls grow up. From their first birthday party and me posting about their birth story, you’ve also watched them turn three (I somehow skipped them turning two) and also turn four.

And now they are turning five! They are in kindergarten and no longer little girls…they are big girls now. I couldn’t be prouder of them – they can both swim without floaties and ride bikes without training wheels. They can write their names and are learning to write all of their letters and numbers. They have grown up way too fast.

Happy 5th Birthday, My Sweet Girls!


Happy Birthday Lila!







Happy Birthday Mia!
