Happy 7th Birthday Lily!
I love this fountain. You jump on the spot in front of the instrument and that instrument plays while making a fountain. When everyone is jumping you make a song together. It is really fun just to watch people doing it. You cannot help but go over and jump yourself. So I am sure that someone caught me in their picture because I could not resist. Look how high Lily is. She is so athletic.
Emma and Meilynn rode the smaller cars.
The highlight of the week was getting a present from her best friend and orphanage sister. When we were in China we went back to the orphanage and brought her friend a present and visited with her. We were so happy that Lyla came home just a week after Lily. We have been able to remain in contact and the girls even tried talking on the phone to each other. We are not sure if they really understood who they were talking to and where they were. But we are working on a surprise that I cannot wait to share.
The tradition in our family is that the person who is having a birthday gets to lick the beaters. Lily loved this idea and I have never seen the beaters come back as clean as they did with her.
I love these
It did not take her long to figure out about birthdays
but oh so pleased
We had a great day. We had a bar-b-que and swimming. I have a lot of video and I will try to put a little of it on.
