Happy 8th Abby

Abby's birthday card from her Papa- for a girl who loves dragons so much, isn't this sooo awesome! Love you Joe.

On the way to Great Wolf Lodge. Actually I think this is them in the driveway waiting for us to get the car packed. :)

After hours in the waterpark, a tired, hungry but super happy boy. :)

Abs up her Wolf Den bed- top bunk with all her Webkinz who made the trip with her.

The way home, ice cream on her face, a smile, Wessy saying "cheeeese," which he apparently can't do without closing his eyes. :)

Happy Happy 8th birthday my girl. A joint family birthday party with her uncle Ben, a cake she designed her self- a dragon of course. Then off to Great Wolf Lodge which is a crazy, wild indoor waterpark. Lots of work for the parents but tons of fun for these kiddos and the parents too, actually. I was totally screaming going backwards on the tube while Abby was laughing her head off, having already been down it a few times with Joe. :) Managing the water with the crowd not many pics were taken, bummer but you can't do it all. A few pictures i wish I had is Wessy being in the wave pool hanging on and all grins in the waves and walking straight into the waves, getting bowled over and going right back for more. Abs's and Joe's face when she got off the Alberta Falls waterslide, her jumping up and down after going on her first few slides she was so excited, her winning 250 tickets at the arcade playing straight ice ball and few basketball games, and of course Joe standing right in the area where a giant bucket with 1,000 gallons of water dumps right on your head- all smiles and that laugh.
Abby you are growing up so quickly. When you turned 7 i felt so excited but 8 makes me feel a little melancholy. There are times when you are completely mature and charming and those other times that you can still seem 5 at best. I love all of you girl.

Oh my gosh, how fun!! Can't wait to do a water park with our kids, I remember having a blast at them as a kid! Happy 8th Birthday sweet girl! You are growing up so fast, it makes my eyes a bit teary, thinking about how fast time is going but also teary thinking of what an amazing young woman you will become!
