Birthday Celebration

We had a beautiful weekend here in Northeast Ohio. Spring has sprung! It was the perfect weather to celebrate Ms. Taylors birthday. She turned 12. It is hard for me to even write that I have a daughter that old. I guess I should have know it would happen some day, right?

All she keeps talking about is that next year she is going to be a teenager. Then I will cry. Really, I will. Maybe it's a mommy thing. Maybe it's because I am extremely emotional. Maybe it's because that means I am officially getting old. Anyway you look at it, it's going to be hard for this momma.

Since I will have no way to get around the big 13, I decided to not have a big party this year. We will wait for the big one next year. Taylor told me she wanted to do something as a family. So that is what we did. Instead of having a party we went to both sets of grandparents and then had a family outing. I think I should have just stuck with one celebration!

It did make for a fun week for her.

First stop was to see Nana and Papa.
Taylor enjoyed daddy helping her to play the Wii.

Then we had cake!

Here is Taylor blowing out the candles.

Then Taylor got lovin from her favorite Papa.
Next stop was to visit Grandma and Grandpa.

Taylor is loving icing the cake all by herself.

Last but not least we had our family outing. It was a beautiful day, sunny and 75 degrees. Perfect for the lake.

Taylor had a blast walking Bobo

Going down the slide

Walking Bobo

Swinging with mommy

And of course, walking Bobo!

CAUTION, Here comes trouble! ;)

I think they both had a long day.

Taylor even got to do her most favorite thing in the whole world this week.

Such great pictures! Blogging is my answer to scrapbooking. I failed miserably at scrapping, so blogging helps me to preserve memories. Have fun!
