The end of June-mid July is what we call BIRTHDAYTOPIA around here.  First is Bella's birthday then 5 days later Savannah's birthday then 11 days after that Emily's birthday.  Throw in Friend parties, and celebratory events and it becomes a month long series of one party after another.  The kids don't get parties every year, its every other year and on the off years they can choose something fun to do or a big gift. 
Gosh I love this girl, she is so spunky and reminds me a lot of Isabella with her large personality

Hard to believe she is 4!!  What a sweetheart

She is currently obsessed with my little pony and loves riding her bike, swimming and playing with her friends.  

Bella chose to go and get pedicures for her birthday, what fun to do that with my girls.   She is getting so grown up, is still a night owl and a total bookworm.  She talks non-stop and I love her energy.  And she knows absolutely everything about animals  

For Savannah's party we went with a "FANGIRL" theme, we took all of her favorite book series' and used them for the theme for games, cupcakes and decorations.  We shot bow and arrows like Katniss in The Hunger Games, We had The Fault in our Stars decorations and handouts (bookmarks) and we played pin the kiss on your favorite Fictional Hunk.  

Dauntless chocolate cake with TFIOS, Hunger Games, Mortal Instruments & Divergent cupcake toppers.  Little cesar flicker man pizza, edible Nighlock and other goodies from the books.  It was loads of fun.  It was a little weird to transition from party host who is in charge and involved in every detail of the actual party like you do when your kids are little to standing back and letting the girls giggle, talk and do things on their own.  Happy Sad.  Happy my girl is growing up to be so wonderful and beautiful and sad she is growing up and not my baby anymore.  Can't believe she is 13!

We spent the weekend in Gearhart, OR outside of Seaside, what a fun relaxing few days.  You can see the Tilamook lighthouse in the distance

This beach was the best for catching live and dead sand dollars, we have never found so many before.  

Scott & Clarissa joined us for an afternoon and evening of playing together.  

Thursday we got up and celebrated Savannah's birthday with some go carting, and candy buying

I don't think Emily has ever been this dirty

Love these kids of mine
