Vanessa recently turned 5. Time has gone by way too fast. This year we celebrated her birthday by staying the night at a hotel (we finally used a gift certificate we've had) the Friday before her birthday. Then on Saturday, we took a trip to the Mall Of America to visit the American Girl Doll store. Vanessa has been wanting to go there for a long time. She had $60 saved up to spend on what she thought before she got there it was for a bed for her doll. But, of course when she got in the store she wanted a doll. So we put our money together and she walked out with a new American Girl Doll for her birthday. Then off to grandpa Dan's for more birthday celebrations! We had a BBQ over there and she opened some presents. Finally, on Sunday which was her actual birthday, we started the day by going to church, then we met up with grandma and grandpa for lunch a Don Pablo's. After that we headed over to French park then over to grandma's for cupcakes.
