Let me start by saying I could just kick myself! We went to JJ's pool, and I even brought my camera! Did I take a picture? Not! And guess what! She was SWIMMING, REALLY SWIMMING without her life jacket. She was diving for plastic fish and retrieving them again and again.
I will forever have that picture in my mind, and I will never say never again! I would have never ever dreamed she could swim, but swim she can! YEA ERIKA! What a great birthday gift! Thank You Lord. :)
Next, we started birthday dinner. Erika loves Sourcream Chicken Enchiladas, and she also likes to help cook. Here she is cutting onions. :)
Next was the cheesecake. I didn't make a home made one this year, but bought one of those multi kinds with different flavors. It looks dinky, but they ate it ALL! So it must have tasted good. :)
Here is Erika and Daddy watching her movie pick. :)
What a nice end to a lovely day. :)
Happy Birthday Baby! You are a wonderful awesome daughter! A mama could not be more proud. :)

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
