We spent the past seven weeks with Lolli and Pop while quarantined. We enjoyed spending time with them. Many games were played, books read, meals cooked, songs sung, bikes rode and masks sewed. It was sad to say goodbye, but exciting to head back out with our home on wheels yesterday.
We are now back close to our hometown for a couple weeks, staying at our favorite spot on Lake Somerville in Texas. Then we plan to head north for the summer.
Today, we celebrated Treasure’s 5th birthday.
She had a donut stack with candles for breakfast.
We read her what we had each written her in her journal, and she opened gifts.
We went for a walk around the lake.
Then the rain started pouring down just after some friends arrived. We had planned to grill hot dogs and roast marshmallows for s’mores. We improved by picking up pizza and microwaving s’mores.
All-in-all, it was a great day!
Happy 5th birthday, Treasure Bliss!
Girl, you are just so much fun! You have so much energy, zeal and spunk. You have a motivation and a determination in you that causes you to accomplish most anything you set out to do. Because you were determined, you learned to ride a bike without training wheels far earlier than any of your older siblings. You love to climb high, ride fast and choose the most adventurous option. I often find myself saying, “Oooh Treasure, that’s awesome but please be careful!” You play hard from the time you wake up until the time you go to bed. You very rarely sit still. You have a vibrant loud voice. You have a blast playing with your brothers and sisters. You enjoy playing most anything – outside or inside. You love playing games and are really good at understanding many games at your age. You most always have a smile on your face and laughter coming from your mouth. You live for fun, and you spread that fun everywhere you are. Lolli says you are a little Kristin, a lot like your momma. I sure do love you, and I am so happy I get to be your mommy! You are an awesome, one-of-a-kind daughter who brings a big smile to my face every single day! 💗☀️
