A Kalahari Kind of Bday

Thanks to sweet Grandma Nee Nee, Shayla had a FANTASTIC bday celebration! I was selected to present a session for middle grades teachers at a conference at Kalahari and it just so happened that Shayla did not have school that day either. We thought that was the perfect mix for a party: babysitting by grandma at a waterpark with mom to take over at the end of the day, sweet!

Shayne came up both days after he was finished at work. He was AWESOME surfing! I had a blast taking pictures of him!
Kalahari - an AMAZING indoor water park!

All of the girls had fun trying to "surf" on the Wave Rider. (Pic: Shayla)

The six girls really enjoyed our large condo we rented for two nights. Grandma and I cooked up some delicious meals and treats. Shayne created a wonderful Scavenger Hunt and the 6th graders enjoyed fixing each other's hair and putting on make up. Ahhhhhh, to be twelve! HAPPY SHAYLUARY!

Angela! I thought I saw you at the Kalahari this past weekend! My family and I were there too! I was in the wave pool and thought I saw you walking by on the upper level. Too far to get your attention over all the noise, and I didn't see you again. Hope you all had a great time, we sure did!

It's been a while since I visited your site. I can't believe how much Shayla has grown up! Word of advice: Don't Blink!!! I did and my girl started college this fall! I'm glad to see you guys happy and doing well. God Bless your family.

Happy Belated Birthday, Shayla! you share the same birthday date as my oldest son - he was born on Febuary 12, 1988. I do think though that you were able to celebrate your 12th bday in a little more style than he did; althought he did have a great "golden" bday, too!
