Alexis had a fabulous birthday weekend to say the least. Not only did she get to see Mati and Brooke, but nearly ALL of her friends and family spoiled her rotten. We went to Happy Joe's on Friday night to celebrate Lexi's birthday as well as my cousin's 24th birthday. (Lexi missed her birthday by about 1.5 hours). She got to open her first gift from Nini and Papa (the adorable Snow White costume). Saturday, 17th (her actual birthday) we spent the day with Jaimie, Brooke, Amy, Mati and Amy's sis-in-law Lori. Lexi got to do her first Build-a-Bear/Bunny and we went to lunch. Sunday was party-time. We had about 50 of our closest friends and family over for a Disney princess party. Lex LOVED the attention, the cake, the gifts, and most of her her family being around. Thanks to everyone for EVERYTHING this weekend! We love you!
We spent a week in the beginning of July at our cabin in Ellington, Mo. (really it's my grandma's cabin, but we all get to use to it) Most of the days were spent shuffling our family from boat to boat on Clearwater Lake. We saw almost every member of my extended family at some point during the week, the most being 15 or so people under one roof (a fairly small roof at that). It was an absolute blast, lots of laughing, lots of sleep and tons of water.
We had a nice visit from Jaimie and Brootie last week for a few days. Jaimie watched Alexis during the day and we got Brooke for an evening, (let that fabulous baby swapping begin.. love it). It's so so nice when the girls get to spend some time together. I wish with all my heart that we all lived in the same city, but we are doing our best to keep them close. Love you girls!!
