Celebrating Carrigan

Like any Ward girl, Carrigan knows how to stretch out a good birthday celebration.  We were thrilled to have family in town for her actual big day.  Uncle Dell, Aunt Julie, Trent, and Lauren were great sports about letting us take them sigh-seeing through all of our favorite Pittsburgh spots (Carrigan loved getting DRENCHED in a fountain downtown) and then we headed home for a meal of Carrigan's choice--pizza.  But really, her favorite thing was her "Cake"..a watermelon fruit salad that the girls had found a recipe for on  She loved it so much that she hardly even  took a bite of her German Struesel Coffee Cake the next morning and instead kept eating fruit.  Her play-doh machine, Tell-Tale Game, princess magnet toys, and new hair bows were much appreciated too (she's a gracious girl) but oh, did she love that fruit. 
A few days later we headed to Great Wolf Lodge for some more extended family fun.  And from there to Indiana for a few nights at a lake house that Josh and Kara rented.  Carrigan opened up new nightgowns, a fairy-tale book, and a scooter complete with accessories.  What fun!  More pictures to come!
