Someone celebrated a birthday over the weekend in our house.

Avery turned 6! I can't believe I have a 6 year old! Mind.blown.

What's my 6 year old like?  She's fun, energetic (I wish I had a fraction of her energy), independent, sassy and loving (most of the time).

She's still in gymnastics, although taking a break for the summer. She loves school (yay!) and was sad to see it end last week. She loves coloring and drawing. She loves having us read to her too. And since she's learning to read, she does well finding words in the books too. This year she has really enjoyed riding her bike a lot. She also got some roller skates for her birthday and can't wait to test them out. Favorite foods these days include waffles, pancakes, any and all fruit, spaghetti, chicken, yogurt. She's been more "daring" with trying new foods lately which is good. Her and Cassie get along pretty well for the most part. We of course have our days and moments, but they really do love each other and play together quite a bit.

So how did we celebrate turning 6 (besides some parties?)?

Well, the day started with breakfast in bed because that's what the birthday girl requested.
They both ended up having breakfast in the spare room bed so they could watch a TV show (special birthday treat).
Then she opened some gifts from us....some clothes,
and a plasma car!
At her friend party last weekend, she had kids bring in donations for the animals at a local shelter. So, we decided to go and drop them off. The staff took her picture to put on their website and of course we checked out all of the animals while we were there.
After that, we stopped at our favorite local diner for lunch. Except that we all ordered breakfast food-including the usual huge birthday pancake!
The rest of the day we just hung around and played. The weather was terrible-it rained literally all day long. Her family party was the next day, so we spent a lot of time getting the cake ready and cleaning the house too. Our dinner that night was going to a frozen yogurt place since we had such a late (and huge!) lunch. Overall, it was a great day!

Happy 6th Birthday Avery! We love you so much!!
