Today we celebrated Lakin’s 9th birthday! The party was at the water park nearby and the girls’ friends Avery, Riley and Mia came for cake and swimming. We were there for hours and all of the kids had an absolute blast. There were three slides to choose from, plus a huge pool, a smaller kiddie pool and a whole park of fountains and sprinklers.
The sun was out in full force and unfortunately, not only did Lakin come home with a whole slew of cool presents, she (and Addah) came home with a bright red sunburn as well… in spite of the high SPF sunblock I kept reapplying throughout the day. A cool bath and a coat of aloe has them feeling much better and sleeping soundly in bed.
Happy Birthday Lakin, my beautiful first born daughter! I love you Bear!
