Facebook Wins....

I've had a few people complain that I have not been very good with updating my blog so I will try and post some happenings in our family. I'll start with Alivia's 5th birthday. She turned 5 on May 28th and has been asking everyday when her next birthday will be. We went to Chuck E. Cheese and had a great time. She asked for a Pogo Stick for her birthday but we decided against that for now.Love the look on her face!Blowing out her candles.Maybe she is overwhelmed? Not sure!

Alivia is a witty, smart, and loving little girl. She has a temper to match though! She loves playing soccer, riding her bike, and LOVES her daddy. She is very excited to start Kindergarten next year and actually graduated preschool. She hated preschool when she was 3 and told everybody she was a "preschool dropout." We are proud of our little girl who is growing up TOO fast.

Aaron and I also celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary on May 24th. We took full advantage of the 3 day weekend and headed to Big Bear, California. What a cool place! We look forward to going back with the kids soon. We stayed in a cute little cabin in The Village, did some fishing, ate lots of YUMMY food, and did some shopping.
On the fishing boat where we both caught trouts weight about 3lbs and measuring 18" long.Aaron with his trout.

I'm going to stop there because I didn't realize the pictures would be so big but I do have much more to blog about. I'll leave you with a few more pictures from Alivia's birthday(especially for you Mom).The all 3 stopped long enough for me to snap a picture(red eye and all!)
So excited about $20 for Grandma and Grandpa Egbert.

Wow, I can't believe she is 5 now! I remember when she was first born you and Aaron came over and visited us in one of our many campers (we were getting ready to go 4-wheeling I think) - you brought Alivia and we just hung out for a bit and I held the little munchkin...so cute! Weird how short moments in time stick in your mind for some reason. It seems like yesterday...5 years, sheesh.

When we were there a few weeks ago Ryan told Chuck he was "creepy" lol.

Cute pics from Alivia's birthday. I checked out big bear and it looks like a really neat place. I really want to go there sometime.
