birthday weekend up north

This past weekend we went up north for a visit and to celebrate Kendall's birthday with Chris' parents.  We had a great, great time...

Our friends, Matt and Jana, came out with their kids to help us celebrate.  It was warm enough for swim suits and water out in the backyard.

However prior to water play we tried to water-proof Kendall's bandage. :)

Here is my castle cake.  It was simple but she liked it. :)

Jana and I trying to figure out Kendall's Barbie closet. :)

The kids road their bikes A LOT.

While I didn't take any pictures, a big highlight for me was a clothing swap Jana had invited me to.  Basically several girls gathered together clothes that were still in good condition, but for one reason or another never got worn (I think we all have those).  The host sets up all the clothes at her house ahead of time.  Then we all gather together, draw numbers, and take turns "shopping" for free, cute clothes!!  It was such a fun afternoon and I came home with a large pile of "new" items for myself! :)

What a wonderful time it sounds like! And I know Kendall felt so special! I'm not surprised your castle cake was a hit with her. Good job.

And so glad you have some new clothes. That is such a great thing to do!
