Lucy and Ellory's 4th birthday- family celebration.

One of my favorite family traditions is our family birthday celebration! We let the girls choose where they want to go eat and what activity they want to do on the night of their birthday (or very close to, if for some reason it doesn't work to go on the actual birthday). When Lucy and Ellory get older, we will let them choose their own night if they want something different, but at this age, basically anything is super fun and they quickly decided together on McDonald's and swimming! Unfortunately the McDonald's dining room was closed for supper, so we went to Culver's instead, but thankfully they didn't mind since they could still get chicken nuggets, fries, and ice cream there too. :) They were so excited the whole day that it was their birthday and it was so special. Their excitement is so unfiltered and beautiful and it's so joyful to watch. Earlier in the day, they got to bring treats to preschool and get their birthday hat and sticker, we went out for lunch with the De Jongs, and played outside in the snow. They were very into the fact that it was their REAL birthday and they were REALLY four now. 

Everyone had fun at the pool! My sister Kayla got to come too, since she goes to college in our town, which was a treat! They thought it was great to be able to do the deep end, diving board, and big slides since we had three adults there to help! (When it's just me taking them to swim, we have to stay in the shallow kid area, which is still fun, but it's special when we can do everything!) 

Lucy was super brave and willingly went off the board all by herself (with Kley catching her) several times! Wow! Ellory didn't want to  jump, so she was swimming with Aunt Kayla.

Norah went several times too. She's becoming such a good swimmer!

Slide pictures are some of my favorites!

Happy happy birthday, Lucy and Ellory! Being your mom is my absolute favorite. You are true blessings!

What a special day celebrating our four year olds! I will bottle up these sweet memories in my mind forever.
