And Yaya was her Name-O

Today is Yaya's birthday.

We've been celebrating all weekend with 3 days of swimming in the pool.

One day basking at the beach with the Labor Day crowd, then a BBQ.

Yesterday we brunched on yummy Mexican food at a garden restaurant filled with lovely flowers and cacti.

Tonight Yaya will try her luck playing birthday Bingo.

Tomorrow night we'll dine out and eat delish food and have mousse for dessert.

Happy Birthday Mom, Yaya, Nana, Grandma!

*Also, happy 3rd Anniversary Aunt A and Uncle P!!*

Why is it so hard to get 5 children to smile all at the same time....a normal smile I mean! ;)
