They say it's your birthday

Aviana's birthday started off with a cat nap.

Then, we were then off to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.

My Mom, Gary, Aunt Rella, Summer, Avery & Addison joined in the celebration.

Every which way we turned, someone was there to wish Avi a Happy 4th Birthday!

I honestly thought this guy was going to bust out in song.

Right when I walked up, this guy immediately wandered on over. I loved him.

My favorite....always!

Aviana, on her first ride of the day.

Ha, Ha. As we got going faster, Dave had to hold her head up so she could see. I love this picture.

I have no words.

What a sweet little are my world!

I love this one because she looks like she is about to whisper something to him.

She loved the wind in her face.

Summer, Avery & Addison too.

She's in there, I swear Dave didn't go on this ride by himself :o)

We had come home from Six Flags, got a second wind, went to sushi and then came home for a cupcake. Avi was so wiped out at this time and just wanted to go to bed!

Kama ~ barging in on Aviana's cupcake. Some things never change!

I could hear Avi in that moment, "No Kama, Avi's cupcake!!!!"

Night, Night beautiful. I am so happy you had a fun filled 4th birthday!
