Berrien Springs. Milwaukee. Pittsburgh. Grand Rapids. Back to Pittsburgh. Now back to Milwaukee

She started the two-year-old pre-partying with a chocolate cake in Florida, shared with our other July family birthday, Uncle Josh. Then, on her actual birthday her first request was a trip to Chuck E. Cheese. After her sisters prettied-up her hair, that is. Afterwards she kept saying "Chuck E. Cheese so fun!" Then we invited a few church friends and neighbors to the Blackridge pool for a "greenie" cake and sing "Happy Day"--also, her choosing. She beamed the whole time. Now she uses her birthday present pink water wings like a pro and demands to swim by herself. (With us closely watching, of course). She's so proud of being a grown up even if she still prefers to tell people she's three instead of two.
