We celebrated Maria's fifth birthday all weekend (July 30th to August 1st). Jared, Carla, Kate and Hannah came on Friday night for a sleep over and then spent Saturday with us. Maria got a trampoline for her birthday and Jared got to help CJ set it up while he was here. They started at about 10:00 at night and it took a little longer than they would have liked. All I will say is sometimes it's a good idea to read directions. They got it put together and Maria was very excited and has enjoyed having it to play on. On Saturday we went to the Air Force Museum, got lunch at the Burger Bar, played at the splash pad, and walked around Smith and Edwards before Jared and Carla left. Then on Sunday, August 1st we had cake and ice cream and sang to Maria. I think she had a pretty good weekend. We love her and have enjoyed the past five years with her.
