As promised!!!! Birthdays were a lot of fun this year. Layla's was first, and she turned 3 on May 22. For lunch, her dad took her to McDonald's. Shane says she ate three fries and then went and played on the playground. Evidently the Bowmans were there too and that's all she could talk about for several days. Even now, if you ask her, she will tell you how her dad took her to lunch at 'Old McDonald Had a Farm' and then she played with Kiana and Ki-Wyatt.
Seryn's first birthday was next, May 23. We all went out to dinner that night and the girls thought that was fun. And we had the best sopapias I've ever had!!
Lylli's birthday turned 6 on May 27. We had the family party on her birthday and the girls had a great time. They talked me into making red velvet cake, although the orange frosting doesn't look nearly as good with the cake as the white does. They also decided that the jewelry boxes from Grandma were their favorite presents! In fact, Layla carries hers around like a treasure chest and the girls will sit and watch the figuine spin as the music plays. (And Seryn dances.) Shane took Lylli out of school for lunch at Pizza Hut. They had a great time and I think the lunch thing could become a tradition. (Although I think it could end up being an expensive week in the future.) All in all, the week was busy but enjoyable and now I don't have to worry about birthdays again for a whole nother year!!
I also took some pictures of Seryn on her birthday (I do that with all the girls on their first birthday.) There were some really cute ones but I had to narrow it down . And I really couldn't decide between two of them. So I put them both on. I think she's pretty adorable and I'm glad she's a part of our family.
