Birthday Girl

Birthday #5 for a certain little princess.  Daddy had an overnight meeting in Davenport at the historic Hotel Blackhawk.  He wanted to make it a date night with his hot wife.  Then he realized it was his princess' birthday.  Guess who came along?  That's right, our birthday girl.

Some one-on-one time with Mom and Dad.  What could be better? Upon arrival at the Hotel, she told the woman at the front desk that her birthday was the next day.  Claudia, the clerk, let Bethany know that she'd send something to her.  As we were getting ready to head down to the pool, there was a knock at the door. The staff of Hotel Blackhawk made this little girl's day!  A plate arrived with a huge chocolate chip cookie with "happy birthday" written on it, a cake pop, a princess glow-in-the-dark wand, and a blinky ring.  She was even excited about the strawberry garnish and raspberry syrup.  Hardly able to sit still, here she is with her first birthday gift.

We spent a few hours in the pool.  Well, not the whole time.  We went back and forth and back and forth and back and forth a bazillion times from the hot tub to the pool.   She was loving it even though she can't swim and was a bit scared at moments.  We went back to the room in time for her to play in the big spacious shower before we got ready for supper out with Daddy.  When we got back to the room after supper, she was WIRED again as she played with glow sticks, pranced around in a "movie star" robe, and had 100% of our attention.

This morning we bored her with a bit of business on our way back home.  But we eventually had a little more fun with her in Dubuque where she got to ride a cable car to the top and overlook the city and the Mississippi River, stopped at an ice-cream shop and then finally headed home to get the boys.

Even though it wasn't all thankfulness overflowing from her heart and mouth, we thank God for blessing us with this sweet girl.  We love you Bethany!
