Our 5 year old!

Daddy and his "bug"

Mommy and her "bug"
Today our Kylie bug is 5 years old! I feel like I was just writing a post about her turning 4 years old and here it is, another year gone by. Kylie, we love you so much and you bring so much joy and laughter into our lives. We are so blessed to have you as a daughter and although growing up may be tough at times (for both of us!), we will always be here for you no matter what. We wish you a very happy birthday and love you so much!!!! Ava loves her big sister very much too and wishes you a happy birthday too with lots of hugs and kisses! (Birthday party pictures are to come and yes, these pictures are from last July at my brother's wedding but I love them!)

Fun with Nana & Papa!

Ava, Papa and Kylie swimming at Forest Hills Aquatic Center-they love their Papa!

Kylie on the carousel at the Hudsonville Fair-doesn't she looks so old?

Ava having fun!

Kylie on the balance beam at her gymnastics lesson-my sister takes her on Mondays

Both girls at the Hudsonville Fair that Nana took them to-they were showing off their face paintings. (Kylie had a butterfly and Ava has a heart)
We are very blessed to have my mom (Nana) take care of the girls Mondays-Thursdays while Aaron and I are at work. (And Granny, Grandma and Ma Goo Goo on Fridays!) We can't thank her (or them) enough for helping us out and the girls just love spending time with their Nana and Papa. My mom and dad do so much for our girls and are so special to me. We just want to thank them for all that they have done for us. We love you Nana and Papa! We can't wait until you are back from Alaska!

Summertime fun!
