Abby's Birthday Celebrations!

While at the family reunion in Flaming Gorge, my mom surprised all of the June and July birthday people with cupcakes and gifts. Of course the focus was on the kids and they loved their little "Surprise Party". Thanks so much, Mom!
After enjoying Father's Day dinner we had a little birthday celebration for Abby and my niece, Lizzie, who was turning 3 years old the day after Abby. Of course they had cute gifts and Abby loves the Strawberry Shortcake doll and horse they gave her.
The actual day! Abby shares her birthday with her cousin McKenna Higbee. They were born just 4 hours apart and have loved telling everyone they are "twin cousins" ever since. (It's actually a very interesting story if you ever want to hear it... long story short: McKenna was very late and Abby was 6 weeks early... we decided they must have been up in heaven plotting how they could get here at the same time!) Lucky for us McKenna was visiting from California so we celebrated together and we celebrated big!
We started with a little pampering... a day at the salon that ended with matching fingers and toes!
Then we had a delicious dinner with both families at Tepinyaki (I have absolutely no idea how to spell that!)
The whole gang after stuffing ourselves way too much.
Next we were off to the park for cake, ice cream and swimming with all the Higbee family. The girls had a blast and were so cute.
We are grateful to everyone who came and for all the awesome gifts. Abby has had a great time playing with them all the last few days.
Abby loved swimming with all her cousins and jumping of the diving board. She could have stayed there all night.

What a great way to celebrate... it truly was a birthday week! I can hardly believe she is 7!! She is growing up way too fast and I am so proud of the wonderful little girl that she is. Happy Birthday Abby! We love you so much!
