Happy Half Birthday, Quinners!

Three and half years ago today Quinn changed our lives forever by coming into this world! We celebrated with a cookie cake and dinner at Red Robin (her choice).

Chocolate Chip Cookie!

The sisters at dinner.

Quinn practiced singing "Happy Half Birthday" to herself all day.

After the girls picked of a large bit of the decorations.
They were more excited about the icing than the cookie.

California Dreamin'

While discussing what to do for Labor Day Weekend we decided to take a trip to California to visit Mike's family and Mickey Mouse. We were gone just shy of a week and a had a really great time!

It was so cold people were playing beach volleyball in sweats.

Quinn took this nice photo of Pawpaw.

Our first tram ride - the girls had no idea how much fun to expect.

The Queen of Hearts and the White Rabbit

Pluto! Wesley was not too fond of the plush characters.

Chip and Dale!

Minnie Mouse!

Donald Duck!

Snow White!
This was the first princess that the girls met. Quinn was completely enthralled.
The look on her wide-eyed face was priceless.

(Wesley's still not too sure.)

Our first ride - Peter Pan!
Both girls were a little shocked by it.
Quinn's response was "I want to go home." She quickly got over that.

We rode this everyday. Twice on the last day.
