Happy 5th BIrthday Sadie!

Sadie picked Red Robin for her big 5th celebration. Nana Pat came to share her special day with her. Her favorite part had to be the balloon and the group of servers singing her Happy Birthday as loud as they could sing! After lunch Sadie got a BIG surprize. Nana took her to the mall and got her ears pierced. I can't decide who was more excited - Sadie or Haleigh! We sure love you Sadie baby and couldn't imagine our family without your sweet personality!

The smartest thing ever thought up -- the double pierce!

Hotel Del Coronado

I have always wanted to go to the infamous Hotel Del! This past year they had a first ever special and we jumped right on it. It was such a fun time and such a beautiful hotel. We also enjoyed sharing the fun with our friends the Beechers. Both Kelly and I were loser picture takers but I did scrape together a few! We had a great time at the beach and loved just walking right out to the sand from the lobby of the hotel. One night while we were there they hotel had smore pits on the sand and while making smore after smore we got to watch the Navy Seals do a training exercise right on the shore. It was sure enteretaining and pretty amazing the strength and stamina they have to have. It was perfect weather for a beach weekend and a great way to end our summer. Love these four kids!
