Happy Birthday isla

Isla turned 3 this year.  It was definitely the most fun birthday so far.  It was the first year she could anticipate it, be surprised, open her own presents, and be excited about them.  There are certainly few things more precious than seeing pure delight on your child's face.  She told us all day about the things she didn't need us to do because she was most definitely a big girl now. 

Isla has a lot of spunk.  She is quite good and adamant about expressing herself with an exceptional vocabulary.  This little girl is just about as sassy as she is tender-hearted.  We feel honored to call her our girl.

We thought we would share some photos of her special day.

Visit from Grammy and Pops

Grammy and Pops came up to surprise Isla for her birthday.  It was a wonderful surprise.  We started the weekend off with a walk up to the house.  It's taking on color this week!

They also brought some boxes for us.  They were a big hit with the kids.
