Annie's Big Day

Annie's Big Day came and she was so sick but she was such a trooper.

We went down to breakfast at the hotels buffet. This is the one of the kids favorite parts of staying in a motel, the breakfast buffet!
Anthony, Jaileigh, Michael and Jakob

Annie wasn't up for eating or for pictures. 

After we ate we went back upstairs for present time. 

Each of the kids wrapped her a present and decorated a card for her. 


I think she likes the present!

She really, really wanted this Princess Poppy doll. I refused to buy it for her but Grandma and Grandpa spoiled her!

Can you see how excited I am!

oh my goodness!

Mike walked to the local grocery store at 5 in the morning to get her a breakfast birthday cake. 

Ready for a morning swim

After our swim, we headed to the baseball game. 


They have a little baseball park for the kids to play in. The boys loved it!

They finally let us in to the ball park. We went in to watch the Cubs warm up and to try to get signatures from the players.
