Holy shit! She's FIVE!

[sigh] Yesterday was Grace's fifth birthday. I can't believe she's that old already. It's bittersweet, lemme tell ya.

We had a fantastic day though. The sun was shining (yay for no more rain!) and my mom and I took the girls to an indoor climber/games place, where they had a blast!

Then we came home and played with her new basketball net. Of course, being the insanely athletic child that she is, we think we have to raise the net because there is practically no challenge there for her already. LOL!

After dinner, my parents, my in-laws, and my sister & BIL came over for cake and ice cream.

After everyone left, she was thrilled to discover that CBS was running a special on sharks. She is completely convinced that "they" knew it was her birthday and ran the show just for her because they know how much she loves sharks. LOL!

We all fell into bed completely exhausted. One more birthday party on July 8th for her daycare friends and we are done with birthdays for the year. I have to tell you, I'm not really sad about that... ;)
