Mercy’s 6th birthday…

Today we celebrated Mercy’s 6th birthday!

Mercy started the day by going with her Daddy to select some donuts.

When they got back to the RV, we did our traditional donut stack with candles.

Mercy was so excited about the pink donut and the blue donut with sprinkles she picked for herself.

After breakfast, we read Mercy what each of us had written in her birthday journal, and she opened the gifts we got for her.

Mercy requested we go to Mod Pizza for lunch. We had never been prior to new friends inviting us recently here in California. It’s such a fun and yummy place. Our kids love getting to walk through the line and select the toppings for their own personal pizza. Mercy picked pepperoni and sausage.

She got a special drink and a free miniature cake there as well.

Then Mercy wanted to go to a really fun park with a playground. A quick Google search landed us in the perfect spot for an afternoon of fun.

The weather in California is amazing. It was around 75 degrees all afternoon.

Mercy had a blast, and so did all her sisters and brothers.

Happy 6th birthday, Mercy Rain!
