As always, the girls’ birthdays fall on the Fourth of July weekend, so we typically celebrate with friends either the weekend before or the weekend after. This year we celebrated on June 26. It is really such fun to have 3 girls born within days of each other in July. Right now it means one birthday party each year. We will see how long the joint birthday party satisfies the birthday girls.
My parents (Nana and Papa) came in on Friday. The last couple of times they have come in they have stayed in a hotel. This is super fun for Liberty because then she has unlimited access to an indoor pool. After running several birthday errands, we spent time at the pool.

On Saturday we celebrated with some of Liberty’s friends. We were so blessed to have such a great location for the girls’ party. A friend of ours has an absolutely gorgeous backyard with an in-ground pool.
Another friend of mine made the individual cakes for the girls. She did such a great job and they were sooooo cute with their summer themes.
Liberty’s Beach Cake
Emory was so cute when she got her cake. So very different from Liberty on her first birthday. She approached it very delicately and just poked her little finger into the icing and then licked it off. She continued to do this until she had a little tiny tunnel in her cake where she kept sticking her finger in. She never did attack it and just dive in. So sweet and cute.

The girls got so many wonderful and thoughtful gifts. Here’s just a few. There were so many!
Oh my goodness all those girls are so sweet!

The girls had so much fun. It was so hot and they all loved loved loved the pool. Even some of the parents joined in the fun and got in the pool. I was so busy that morning that I totally forgot to put my swimsuit on!
After the party we came home and cleaned up and headed to church with the whole family. Liberty was so excited to show her church class to her Nana and Papa. After church we all went to Bricktown for dinner. Scott and I never go down there. It is always such a treat when we do. After we managed to find somewhere to park, we headed over to Chilenos. It was out of this world good. We all enjoyed being stuffed and walking along the river. It was the perfect end to an absolutely fabulous Birthday weekend.
