Mikayla's Birthday Party

As soon as I woke up this morning I rolled over to see how warm Mikayla felt (we put her in the bed with us last night since she was sick). To my surprise she didn't feel warm at all. When I got in bed last night she was burning up, and she said "everything hurts". I was thinking the worst, and had mentally planned to call the doctor this morning. Since she wasn't warm, I got started on her cake (see post below) instead of making that call. When she got up, I asked how she felt. She said nothing hurt and she didn't have a fever, so the party was on!! We are so thankful that it doesn't appear to have been anything serious!

The kids LOVE going to Mimi and Poppi's in the summer to swim, so it makes sense that they would want to have some parties there! It works out really great for mom and dad too, because we get cake, ice cream, and Little Caesar's Pizza and the pool provides plenty of entertainment for the kiddies! Thank you again mom and dad for letting us have Mikayla's party there - We know you put in a lot of work to get ready for the party and we appreciate it!!

I love this picture! Their faces show how much fun they were having in the pool! Mikayla had her yellow float on, but when Bree got their and had "swimmies" on, Mikayla wanted her "swimmies" on too.

The girls - well some of them... The little ones had a ball playing with Lauren and Samantha in the pool!

The boys being boys!

After swimming, it was time for pizza - the adults enjoyed some too!

After pizza, Mikayla opened her gifts.

Then it was time for cake and ice cream. Mikayla wanted to cut the cake from the bakery first because she wanted to "save my castle for home".

It was a great party, and everyone seemed to have a fantastic time - especially Mikayla! Happy Birthday baby girl!!
