Ruth is FIVE

For Ruthie's birthday we got together for a gorgeous hike in Logan Canyon in the morning with cousins!

Everyone waded in, got too wet, and had a marvelous time.

Molly loves Chezney SOOO much!

I think I had my camera on landscape mode or something weird.
After our hike the kids played, I ran to Smith and Edwards, and then we headed up Blacksmith Fork Canyon for a hot dog roast. It is always perfection.
Harriet and Clover look SO much alike to me!
She's FIVE! We took about twelve of these, and her eyes were closed in every. single. one.

This girl. I really can't believe she's five. I blinked! And they always say, don't blink! She is my biggest helper, the quickest one to a joke, the one that grandpa can't fool, and so sharp she keeps me on my toes. She is also the sweetest with her siblings and often the one willing to go the extra mile to share or sing another song to make her siblings happy. She is still the sparkliest, twirliest, ruffliest, pinkest princess of them all and I love her so much!

Will came with me to Smith and Edwards--we got a .99 parachute man and it is AMAZING--it's real fabric, not plastic, and he has carried it around EVERYWHERE!

Ruth wanted PINK PUPcakes with PINK sprinkles and of course, Grandma delivered. They were the BEST cupcakes I have ever tasted! Ruth was thrilled!

Grandma had all the kids huddle around to try and shield the candle from going out from the wind, haha.

Make a wish!
I think because they are at the zoo, she has been asking for binoculars FOREVER. All her dreams came true! I asked her later that night if she liked them, and she said "Yeah, but I thought they'd be pink." HAHA.

A horsie with a barbie. She was very happy!

Oh I just love that girl! I can't believe my little baby is becoming such a beautiful girl! I just love her SOOOOOO much!
I couldn't find Molly for a sec. She thought she was the greatest! haha
