Birthday Pictures

Good Morning! I hope you all had a great weekend. We had a fun time celebrating Emily's 9th birthday.

Cereal
At our house the birthday girl or boy gets to pick out a special box of cereal for breakfast. Grace decorated Emily's chair with red streamers.

Emily
One of Emily's favorite gifts was a Koala Webkinz.

Emily
She also loved her new Polly Pockets.

Emily
Phillip came home for lunch and we had a brownie cake and ice cream for dessert. Then Emily and I got to spend the whole afternoon and evening together. Phillip and Benjamin had a Boy Scout day camp all week and Grace joined them on the last day. Emily and I went to the movie store and stopped for pizza on the way home. We watched Milo and Otis and then Emily went swimming in our small wading pool.

Table
Saturday evening we went to Nana and Papa's house for a cookout.

Peaches
My friend Heather recently shared a recipe for Refreshing Peach Fizzy, which is perfect for the summer.

Drink
I couldn't find white grape and peach frozen juice, so I just used plain white grape. It was very good!

Grace and Emily
Opening more gifts.

Emily
And enjoying *another* cake! Thank you for taking a look at Emily's birthday pictures!
