Rachel's 6th Birthday

It's hard to believe that our baby is now 6 years old! Technically old enough to be out of her booster seat here in the State of California.

Rachel doesn't have any problem with popping out of bed and getting her day started. I only pray this continues through the years. LOL. She was up and dressed, had her bed made and was ready to go to school in a timely fashion so that she could open up her birthday presents from Mommy and Daddy and from Uncle Ed and Aunt Kim and her cousins who live in Oregon. She got her very own scooter from Mommy and Daddy. Pink of course. She thought it was special that we let her ride it on the kitchen floor! Check out those shoes she's wearing - groovy, huh? Those are called Twinkle Toes and they are the latest and greatest hit from Sketchers. Two families of friends went in on them and gave them to Rachel for her birthday, she absolutely LOVES them!!

Now that Rachel stays at school for lunch, I was able to bring her lunch for her special day! Her choice was a Happy Meal from McDonalds! Papa is on vacation this week, so he and Gramma surprised Rachel and showed up to have lunch with her on her special day as well. To finish off her special day, we ordered a pizza and had a coffee table picnic. We ate pizza, watched an episode of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and she opened up a few packages that came in the mail today.She had a great birthday! This is the first time that Rachel's birthday has fallen on the day of the week that she was born!
