Hallie's Half Birthday


This was one of my favorite days of summer. We like to celebrate Hallie's half birthday with gifts and friends, rather than on her real birthday because it is less than a week before Christmas. This summer Dana and her 3 girls and baby boy were up visiting her parents, so she and Stephanie provided all the kids we needed for a fantastic birthday party! Since it turned out yucky outside, Matt allowed us into the gym at his new school to play. After the birthday festivities, the weather had gotten decent (no rain), so we took the kids out to the Redoubt playground. We decided to continue on our day by driving them over to McDonalds playland for dinner! I have decided that there is not much better than the comfort of being in the presence of old friends. We know each other so well, that even though we rarely get to see each other or spend time together or even talk that often, that when we do get together we can just pick up where we left off. It's a wonderful feeling. (But I do wish Dana lived closer!)
