Lounger & Shades

When we were swimming in Vegas, Annie found this double lounge chair. She insisted that she and I take a nap on it. We rested for about 5 minutes and then she was off again.
 
 
One of the wattresses gave Anthony these. He's such a flirt.

Annie's Birthday In Las Vegas

Here are the rest of Annie's Birthday weekend pictures.

I made her a bed on the chair. It lasted 2 minutes.
 
 
 
The next day, Saturday we went swimming at the Marriot pool in Summerlin.  It is so much fun. My kids love it! Joe pulled all kinds of strings to get us in there. He also got our rooms for us and the buffet. Thanks Joe! You're the best!

We swim from 10-4 and then ran back to the hotel room for a quick rest. Grandma and Grandpa pops came up for dinner.
 
Grandpa pulled Jaileigh's lose tooth out for her. She didn't even know he had pulled it out. She ran over to me and I asked her if he had pulled it out and she shook her head no. I told her that her mouth was bleeding and when she opened it there wasn't a tooth! She was so surprised he had pulled it but so excited! She had been working on that tooth for a long time. It was her first lost tooth! 
 
 
Hooray!
 
We went to the Chicago Brewery Company for Annie's birthday.
They made this really neat cinnamon twist cake for her. There was enough little cinnamon twists for everyone to have one plus ice cream and whipping cream.
 
 
A little bit tired.

Thanks for driving down grandma and grandpa! The kids loved seeing you!

Happy Birthday Anndalyn Grace!

Happy 5th Birthday Anndalyn Grace!

Her last night as a 4 year old. Look at all the attitude!



 
She picked her cake out at Albertsons, she didn't want me to make it. I picked it up on my way home from the gym. I sat in on the counter and when I turned around, she'd stuck the horse on it. I guess she still likes horses.
 
She blew
 
and blew
 
and blew
and daddy finally had to help her blow them out.
 
 
Trying on her 3D goggles that came with the pool Jake gave her.
 
A couple of months ago I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday. I said she could go to Disneyland, Lego land, the zoo, the beach, camping, anywhere she wanted to go. She immediately said, "Las Vegas!" Little sinker. They had so much fun in Las Vegas after Labor Day last year that they want to go back all the time!
 
We called our favorite Uncle Joe and asked him for a special birthday present for little Annie, a fabulous stay in a hotel.
 
So off to Vegas we went after eating cake and loading the car!
 
 
She insisted on wearing her graduation hat.
 
 
She knows exactly where she is going.

Swimming was first on the list of to dos.



Then we went to the Seafood buffet. The kids ate so much seafood that I thought they were going to be sick. Mussels, Oysters, Crabs, fish. plates and plates and plates of it.




 
Joe hung out with us all day. It was a happy day for little Annie!
 
 
more tomorrow!
