Charlotte's 4th Birthday

I can't believe my little girl is FOUR years old...somehow that seems so old...and how did the time go by so quickly? Well, she had three birthday in Oklahoma, one with her friends on the day of her birthday, and one with Mormor and Papa to celebrate all the July birthdays in our family...Charlotte, Papa, and Uncle Rob. Here's some pictures from each of the celebrations.
She loved the Tinkerbell cake!

And to celebrate on her actual birthday, we had planned to go to the park and have some cupcakes with friends...but the weather was cold and rainy!?! So we had them all over to our house.

And to celebrate all the July birthdays, we went over to Papa and Mormor's house for dinner, cake, and presents.

Happy Birthday!

Visit to Papa and GJ's

We got to go visit Papa and GJ in Oklahoma for the 4th of July, GJ's birthday, and Charlotte's birthday. We had lots of fun. It was Isaac's first time on a plane and first visit to Oklahoma.

Fairy Garden Party

My mom and I took Charlotte (and Isaac) to a Fairy Garden Party at the Quail Botanical Gardens in Encinitas. I've never been to the gardens before, and they were really nice. They had all kinds of crafts and booths set up and a little fairy parade at the end. There were hundreds of little fairies and Charlotte had fun taking it all in.
She was ready to go a couple hours before we left!
