Happy 5th Birthday, Aubrey!

Ok, so this is a little late . . . I know.  I went back to work the day after Aubrey's birthday party and I'm still trying to catch up.  Of course, it doesn't help that the fair started that Friday and she seems to think that we need to live there!

Anyway, I can't believe that Aubrey turned 5 this year!  I can still clearly remember the days right before she was born when I was cleaning out my classroom at MV and figuring out how I was going to take on a new job and a brand new baby.  I guess both are going well. :)

On Aubrey's actual birthday, we went to Jumpy's and Aubrey took her friend Myra along.  Although in this picture, it is questionable whether Myra was having fun, they both had a great time.

Aubrey had a water-themed birthday party this year - complete with water balloons and the slip-n-slide.  I still have a nice reminder of the slip-n-slide in the middle of my backyard.
 Aubrey's birthday cakes have all been show-stoppers and this year was no different.  Her cake was an "inflatable pool" and we had sea friends to go along with it.  Thanks, Aunt Alma!
So, if you remember when Aubrey was born, you remember that less than 2 short weeks, she visited the fair for the first time and she's been loving it ever since.  More to come about the fair in a later post - I have to load the pictures to my computer first!
