Chloe's 7th Birthday August 6, 2008

Chloe is 7. She thinks she is really a big kid now. We did many things to celebrate.
The night before we went to Greenfield, which is just outside of Indy, and stayed in a hotel with an indoor pool. We got there early, so we had the pool all to ourselves for a couple of hours. The kids loved it. There are pictures of them in the pool below, so be sure to check them out. Then we went out to eat and came back to the hotel to play games. We all had fun spending time together. The kids got along pretty well the whole time also. That is amazing enough when we are all in one room together for a long period of time.
The next day, Chloe's birthday, the girls and I, Grandmama, Corey and her girls, Tanya and Victoria all went to a tea house and had lunch. It was a beautiful tea house. The kind little girls and women both ooh and ahh over. The little ones all had chicken fingers. It doesn't matter if you take them to McDonald's, a steak house, or a tea house they always want chicken fingers. We adults all had this amazing chicken velvet soup, or "satin chicken" as Emily called it. We told her at least she had a fabric in the name, so then she called it corduroy chicken soup. She always gives us something to laugh at. We also had sandwiches. Only Emily had tea. Most everybody had lemonade or a coke.
After the tea party Chloe went with Grandmama for the day. Corey took all of the other girls to her house to swim. Yes, she is crazy sometimes! Then Hannah came to Grandmama's that night to spend the night with Chloe. Abigail stayed the night at Corey's with Elizabeth. Then last night they all stayed with Corey. I told you she is crazy sometimes. She had 7 little girls.
Overall, Chloe had a wonderful birthday. Thank you for all of the cards and gifts that were given to her. Look down below for more pics.

Happy Birthday to Chloe. We are having the boys a birthday party next Saturday. But more importantly congratulations to you for making it seven years! I always felt that the children's birthdays were a celebration of making it another year! It looks like you and the girls have been having so much fun together!

Hey Rachel,
I can't believe how old your girls are getting! (I'm not mentioning the fact that we aren't getting any younger as they grow :) ). It looks like you all are doing well! Wish Chloe a happy birthday from us!
