Our little girl is 5 YEARS OLD?!?! Crazy as it seems, 'tis true. We had a little mommy-daughter date the night before. All Addy knew was that we were going to go somewhere special - the rest was a surprise. We went to see "Beauty and the Beast" at an outdoor amphitheater. It was a great play! It was stopped once for a "rain delay" and just as it was over, the heavens were OPENED in all their glory. We ended up soaked and crying (just one of us) after it was over, but it was a fun, special night.

She wanted a swim party, which seemed like a good idea at the time. Wouldn't ya know that this just happened to be the week of rain. Since there was a glimmer of blue sky when kids arrived, we went straight out to the backyard for some water fun. It didn't last a real long time, but they had fun splashing and playing.

We had a birthday celebration dinner at California Pizza Kitchen that night with the local grandparents. After 24 hours of celebrating, we were experiencing meltdown moments.

She's a cutie Brittany. I can't believe she is 5. I remember holding her one Sunday during class when she was just a chubby little baby! Wow, those years sailed by fast.
