Happy Birthday Stelly!!!

Stella turned 3 today!!!
Hanging out with her favorite "boy" friends. 
Lunch with Daddy.
Getting a big squeeze from Isaac.
The cake...don't even ask.
Girl time.
Group hug.

Stella turned 3 today!!!  We had a great day playing at the park and being with friends and family.  It was really low key but still a fun day.  First she wanted to help me take Isaac to school.  Then we came home and made a strawberry cake with chocolate frosting.  After I asked her if she wanted to paint, play play doh, draw or play dolls together but she just wanted to take a nap.  So she lied down for a quick nap before heading off to pick Isaac up from school. We then met up with some friends and headed to the park.  The kids had fun running around but got hungry fast so we walked down to Burger King. (aka the french fry store)  Dad met up with us for lunch.  (which is always fun!)  After lunch we went to another park and played around for a while.  Then off to another friend's house for dinner.  And finally home to open a few presents and go to bed!  

Happy Birthday Stelly.  We love you so much and are so glad we get to enjoy you everyday.  I hope you had a great day.

Happy birthday! She's so beautiful. And I can't believe she took a nap the morning of her birthday!

The cake looked yummy even if it did kind of crack. That probably just meant that it was extra rich and good.Stella looks so short compared to her boy friends. She is a doll though. Glad she had a fun day.

What beautiful grandchildren we have. They are growing so fast. It's amazing how fast they can grow and change in just a couple of months. Stella is such a pretty little "princess", she looks so cute on her birthday. And Isaac and Joaquin are so handsome. I hope Stella had a peice of cake for GMa Karen. Keep the pictures coming.

Happy Birthday Stella! I can't believe she's 3. That means Micah is 3 in six more weeks. It seems like yesterday we were both pregnant sitting at the 113th park both pregnant and miserable. But totally worth it. Stella is incredible gorgeous. Her little face is so pretty and her eyes are to die for! Beautiful!!

Sounds like the birthday was fun and exciting. I too can't believe she took a nap. That is funny and so nice.

When do you come home to the states? It's gotta be soon:)

Eryka,
This is your mom's cousin, Marcia Banks Johns. We just went to the annual reunion in Redmond. Your mom and dad didn't attend, but your grandma (my aunt) was there with the "brag book." It was so great! She showed it to everyone. Your grandma is so proud of you. It looks like you're having a fun time in Spain. Where will you be living when you return?
