Meredith's Birthday

Goodness, we had fun celebrating Meredith's third birthday. It was hot and at moments, miserable and, here and there, Chris and I may have gotten into some tiffs as we struggled to get things set up for the party in the beating sun. BUT, overall, we had a great time. Simply put, we are just so glad she was born.

Friday, her actual birthday, we had a train adventure with some of her very favorite people. Later, we met up for cupcakes and dinner with her birthday twin and her parents.












Saturday afternoon was her party. We had a few friends over, let the kids splash in some water and enjoyed pizza and ice cream cake. It was simple and fun and thankfully there was enough shade that no one suffered heat stroke. I was seriously nervous.

Dear Claire, We loved seeing these photos of you and your family with Dave and MarDee. Thanks for posting them. I can't believe how much Meredith and Mattias have grown. I am anxious to see them and you and Chris! Tell me what you gave to Mer for Papa and me? You did get the check? We love you so much and are so proud to be your grandparents. God bless you and Chris with the two amazing great grand children. We are blessed!
