Happy Birthday Gennifer!!!!

My oldest baby turned 28 today! Gennifer, it seems like yesterday that Dad and I brought you home from the hospital, all pink and beautiful, to begin our new lives as PARENTS! Boy was it scary! Now, 28 years later, we would both say that it has been a great journey! You have filled our lives with joy and laughter. And now, it is our turn to watch you and Jake on your journey with your little ones. We had a fun picnic in the park with the family, and YOU had a fun day shopping at Nordstrom with all of your gift cards. Happy Birthday to our sweet baby girl. We love you so!!


We ran around like airplanes.......
We played Simon Says.........
We chased each other.........


We stole our Mommie's sunglasses.......
We played Duck-Duck...GOOSE!!
We sang "Happy Birthday to You..." with fresh strawberries dipped in non fat cool whip....
We ate our strawberries, and even did a little double dipping when no one was watching.......
We sat in the grass for our picture.....

And we ate our veggies on a blanket in the park.....


It was a fun birthday picnic! Happy Birthday to our Gennifer!!!

I still think I'm 28 years old myself....how could I possibly have children that age?

Happy Birthday to your Genn - it does look like a wonderful way to spend the day!

We do indeed get really hot temps in the summer - just not usually until June, July or August. We often have a few stretches of 90 + during the summer and I hate every single one! LOL Normally in late May, 70 is about average.

Have a great long weekend Kris!

hugs, Linda
