Brizzy had a very special week for her 6th birthday.
Wembley got to come to class for Brizzy's birthday moment.
Briz got to sit in the teachers chair and the kids got to give her a compliment and/or ask her a question.
For the day of her birthday, we went with her cousins to the Clackams Aquatic Center where we went down waterslides, swam, and rock climbed.
Then Briz got her big present: she flew to Utah by herself to spend a weekend with her grandpa and grandma, aunts, and cousins. It was her idea. And I was all for it, until we went to the airport. And I thought I was going to have a panic attack.
I was full on crying watching her get on the plane. It felt so wrong. But she was perfectly fine and excited.
When the plane took off, my stomach dropped. I knew logically she would be fine. But it went against everything I feel as a mom to keep my kid close and protect them. Luckily I knew once she got to Utah she would be great! And she was. She had a total blast and really didn't miss us at all.
While she was gone we had great weather, and Wems and I played in the water.
We also celebrated mothers day. It was a very restful day.
We had a great day at church and enjoyed the sunshine outside.
We also went exploring the rhododendron garden with Wesley and Megan. Look at that look of adoration. It's very much one way.
