Bria's Birthday







Bria is our big 4-year-old now! Saturday, March 14th she turned 4 and had a little princess pool party here. It turned out to be a blast. Mike made a waterslide out of the slide on the swingset out back, and the girls had a riot sliding down into the pool. We played a waterballoon game that turned into a waterballoon fight, made visors, tried karaoke (not such a big hit with these youngins), had cake and icecream and opened presents. It was a beautiful day to be outside and Bria was literally counting down the days.


She loved all her gifts and has really been playing with them all, which, any of you who have small kids will know, is a nice change from the 1-and-2-year-old stage where the wrapping is cooler than the gift.


Birthdays are such a nice time to sit and recognize just how much someone has grown over the last year. Bria has really become such a little lady. She is articulate, studious with her books and letters and words, patient, and exceptionally loving. We feel lucky that she is our child and we love her.

  2. Happy Birthday Bria! It was still a little chilly that day.....did the kids freeze? Caitlin and Sierra were so excited Bria invited them, but sad they couldn't make. Tell her they missed her. They had fun at G'ma's though.......they were spoiled too!

  5. Yeah I'm preggo. We are pretty excited. My due date is Sept 10th. We should be finding out the sex in the next 4 weeks. I can hardly wait. If it's a girl we'll name her Addison Grace. If it's a boy, we aren't set on a name, but we like Marcus Bo and Rex Korver. How are you?
