Some how the years have flown by and I am now the mother of a 7 year old, 6 year old and a 4 year old. It seems just like yesterday I had three under three. I have survived thus far...but you know what. I am sooo lucky and blessed. These girls are amazing. Sure sometimes they do things that drive me batty, but they are good kids.
Before Rachel's actual birthday, which was the 23rd, we had a friend party for Laura and Rachel's buddies. They had some family friends, and some school friends come, and we had a party at the Ft. Eustis Aquatic center. This went very well. You don't have to be military to book it, it's extremely affordable (seriously the cheapest I have gotten away with in years), and it's like a mini water park inside.
Rachel asked for pretty much everything Laura asked for, so she got a swim bag, some baseball things, etc etc. We had a early birthday party with family, and then later on she wanted to go back to a paint your own pottery place in Port Warwick. We just went to a birthday party there last weekend, so the girls go to pick up what they painted then, and they sat down and painted bowls that they want to use for their morning cereal. The girls love going there, it is fun, but I feel like I need a Xanax the whole time as I am afraid something is going to break the whole time.
