I had decided I would make Isaiah's birthday cake. It was supposed to be a train. I don't know if you can tell. It didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. You know (I've complained of this before), I have these grandiose ideas of how it would turn out, and it just didn't. I think it would have been better had it not been so humid, things would have frosted better, etc. The part that's important is that the kids totally devoured it. I think Angie's brother was able to wrap up ONE piece and take it home.

We didn't have any bread for the kids to feed the birds, so they were trying to feed them rocks. I don't know how many times we had to tell them that birds don't eat rocks!
Brenda & I both took pictures of ourselves with our children. She and the boys are so photogenic...kinda makes me ill. I do not take pictures as well. Maybe it's the 4 chins I have?
Then, Hunter & Quinlynne decided they needed to take pictures together. Those two are such nuts! I can't speak for Hunter, but I know that Quinlynne will definitely miss her partner, Hunter, when he goes back to Arizona. I guess that just means we'll have to load up at some point and pay a visit. (Is that a threat??)

She enjoyed the bull riding. She even took the camera and tried to take some pictures. She got a couple of decent ones.
As soon as the bull riding was over, the wind picked up and sprinkles began. By the time we made it to the vuck (van/truck= Chevy Uplander) it was beginning to pour. It took us quite a long time to get out of the parking area, but we just listened to music. We also enjoyed watching the cowboys. I made the mistake of commenting how hot the one in front of our vuck was. He then got in his dualie and Quinlynne said "Momma- I can't see him!!" So, I rolled down my window and he rolled down his and we started chatting. How funny is that??
Grandi was even a stage mom. She deserves a huge polishing on her halo for that.
Here she is with her Momma. But you know who she was most excited to see right away? Her Uncle Aaron. Right before the curtain went down we had yelled her name and she saw us. She was so excited to see us all. Quinlynne got some miniature carnations from me and silk carnations & a magic wand from her father. Yes, I'll hold while you all pick your jaws up off the ground. He came to the recital. I have no clue if he's actually TRYING to be a dad, or if he's up to something. Since I only got $14.15 in child support last month..... Anyhow, Father Dearest wanted to get hugs from Quinlynne, but she just wanted to see her Uncle Aaron!
Finally, here is Quinlynne with her teacher, Miss Leach. She thinks Miss Leach is great. And here is an adorable picture of Elijah, Isaiah, and Quinlynne.
By the way, that is the cake I made for her special day. It's a Lollipop. The name of her dance song was something about a Lollipop.... Oh- and we didn't even get sick with the "flesh" colored tights- you know how I feel about those!

(Dental problems tend to be hereditary. I only have 23 teeth due to dental heredity. My mom is missing 7 teeth and my dad's sister is missing 6. I have no wisdom teeth, I am missing a 12 year molar, I have 4 ankelosed teeth that were removed, and I still have a baby tooth in the bottom center front. I have been praying that Quinlynne would have better luck than I. We won't know anything definitively until she is 6 and has the panoramic xray done....but we know for sure that she is missing the 2 bottom center front teeth. She has no adult teeth behind those baby teeth she has now. It could be worse, I keep telling myself. I wonder what else lies waiting??)
I had a very cute little onsie I had gotten for Cadyn, so she had to wear it when I had her! She didn't have any pants, so I found a pair of pants that had been Quinlynne's, and a cute headband!
