During the time of our busy swim classes, we celebrated a birthday. Karis turned five on May 22nd.
This is Karis the day before her first birthday. It doesn't seem like that long ago, but we have moved four times and added another member to the family since this picture was taking, so I'm guessing it's actually been a little longer.
This was even before that. One of my favorites.
She chose to eat at Double Dave's for lunch. We took her friend Jenna who is in her class at school.
Since they serve chocolate chip pizza on the buffet, there was no reason to eat her chocolate chip cookie cake yet.
We treated the family (and Stefanie Kellum who was in town to visit for Memorial Day...yippee! Caleb snapped this in the car)
to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner. After dinner, Stefanie bought Karis a volcano cake, so we didn't need the chocolate chip cookie cake yet again...
Karis wasn't too excited about being sung to, so she's just pretending they aren't there. I don't blame here.
It was a long, fun day, but we had too much sugar, so the cookie cake will have to wait until tomorrow. Sounds like a nutritious breakfast to me. Guess we'll go home now.
