Happy Birthday H3!

My baby just turned 7 yesterday! She is such a sweet girl and lights up our home with her terrific personality. Today in the car she was telling me that there's no job she'd rather have when she grows up than to be a mother. She loves and cares for her baby dolls and is very sensitive to the feelings of the people around her. I admire her faith. She is always the one that is willing to say a prayer, remind us to have Family Home Evening, or recommend that her brother or sister get a blessing when they are sick.

She got a camera (it's a piece of scrud, but she likes it), a styling head, a baby doll (of course), and a Happy Napper.

We also had a little birthday party for her. She had a Rapunzel cake:

The kids played with Fazoodles:
and she got some really fun gifts. It was a great, and exhausting, day for her.
A couple of weeks ago we took a trip to St. Louis to visit my family. Boy, it was hot! We had a great time though. We went to Purina Farms where the girls tried milking a cow:

And we saw a really, really, weird looking duck:

We also took a trip to Liberty, MO to visit my brother and his family. We were going to take a train, but because of complications due to flooding, we ended up taking a bus instead. It was still fun.
We had dinner at Buca de Beppe in Kansas City and played in the fountain.

We also got to go the Magic House (it's like a big Children's Museum). There was a big "beanstalk" connecting the floors of the museum that the kids could climb up and down on:
Their favorite room was the bubble room. H1 made the biggest bubble of anyone!
That's pretty much all that's new for us around here lately!
