Yes, one of the highlights of my summer was being in Colorado for all the birthday fun. In addition to playing all the games I absolutely loved as a child (Trouble, Operation, Old Maid, Chutes and Ladders), and getting schooled at Wii sword-fighting and canoeing (Adelyn is one formidable foe), it was so much fun reading together and having conversations about, well, everything.
There's a million things I treasure about this little girl, but what I love most about Adelyn is how much she loves life and how thoughtful and kind she is.
While I would've been content for her to stay a snuggly little baby or even a curious little toddler, it's been so fun seeing her grow up, too. Her observations about the world are absolutely priceless, and I already can't wait to hear about what she's been learning in school.
In short, I'm one proud auntie, and I'm so thankful for all the memories during that week I spent with Adelyn and her equally awesome parents. :)
