Day 5 (con't): Meanwhile back at the farm

We stopped at the store on the way back to pick up a few groceries. Then Shane kept the kids busy on the farm for a bit so I could whip up a birthday dinner and get all the presents wrapped.

 Ryli wasn't expecting to come in and find a little surprise party, even if only for the six of us.
These are called Petit Fondants and they just sell them pre-packaged in the grocery stores. The owners had some waiting on us when we arrived. They are have jam inside and are positively scrumptious! They also made a fabulous faux birthday cake, and Ryli loves them...PERFECT!

 She had a pile of presents from friends and family from near and far....

 She got rollerblades, she's been asking for quite sometime.
 and a Schulranzen...or a fancy German backpack.

I'm so glad to have this little girl in my life. I'm grateful that we benefit from her persistence often. We would surely miss out so many things without her.

And Liliana gets to go to bed in style, thanks to Cannon and Ty!

Ryli's backpack is almost bigger than she is :)
