Happy Birthday Uncle Michael!

Celebrating mom's favorite brother.  Bday boy wanted steak dinner. 

Dada went to Miami for a conference and the team received the award for Best Digital Media app. Yay YouTube Kids!

Dada brought us back these special cake pops.

After we put our sister down, we played a Connect Four tournament where I eliminated Dada and let Tyler win ;-)

Pre dinner fun - don't fall in the moat!

Dada's friend got us a new virtual reality toy - very interesting

Parents in Sydney

Our parents ditched us again ... and went all the way to Australia!

Hillsong Church ... where is all started.  Sunday service was like a rock band concert! 

While my parents are away to play, I'm working hard selling Girl Scouts cookies.  Does anyone want to buy a box?

So much fun hanging out with mom's siblings (don't mind my sad face, just feeling moody).  Thanks Auntie Jen, Uncle Michael and Auntie Tracy for sleeping over and taking care of us!
