This year for Jillian's birthday, we decided to have a different kind of party. Jillian always has swimming parties with all of her friends from school. But, since we are between schools this summer, we just decided to have a couple of her favorite friends and cousins over for a pampering/pajama/pizza/sleepover party. Jillian picked her friends Presley and Emerson to come...and of course cousins Macy and Ansley had to come to! I think the girls had such a fun night and Jillian LOVED her birthday party!
We drove and picked up everyone to ride to the nail salon.
All the girls ready for a pedicure!

We spent 8 days in June enjoying a wonderful trip to Atlantis in the Bahamas. This was the first family vacation where we all flew together and left the country. It was quite an experience flying with passports with all these kids...but totally worth it. We all had so much fun being together for the week, and I have about a million pictures to prove it! We also just happened to be on our trip during father's day, Summer & Layton's anniversary, and Jillian's 6th birthday! So, we had a lot to celebrate.
the girls in the airport
on the plane
Our little NON traveler. We did just about everything to keep this baby occupied on the plane...including happy meals and tootsie roll pops!
Atlantis had THE most amazing aquarium! It was so huge and full of so many awesome fish!
We stayed in the Cove
the whole fan
This bench was right by the elevators on our floor. The girls raced down here EVERY SINGLE TIME and would model on this bench when we all turned the corner.
These girls are lucky to have this daddy
Summer and I had to sneak in a picture since we are usually behind the camera.
2 guys that are TOTALLY secure in their manhood!
The best attempt at a family picture
Can you spot the dancers?
Mom and Summer having too much fun on the lazy river
LOVE this picture of my dad! I think he was having more fun than the kids!
Another elevator shot!
cutest beach bum
These two had a great time together all week long
They LOVE their Papaw
Jillian getting her hair braided
Jules getting a braid in her hair
These two LOVE each other
The girls loved playing in these shaded lay out chairs!
Each day Mimi or Seth would walk P around in the stroller to get her to sleep. AND SHE WOULD GO! This baby doesn't sleep in public, so this worked out so nice for us each day!
following their daddy's lead
Jillian LOVES her cousin Ansley...and wants to be just like her!
Papaw on baby nap duty
Seth and I got to go out on a date with out kids one night!
Jillian's birthday fell on our last day of vacation. She woke up that morning to her first gift...a pair of earring she has been wanting!
The birthday girl and her FAVORITE baby!
I can't believe she is 6!
My baby girl and me!

P LOVES MIMI
This is one of my favorite views from the whole week
If you look really close, you can see Jules pouting! She does this A LOT!
P also loves her Aunt Sum and Uncle Layton

Here is the birthday girl before her birthday dinner opening her present from us.
She got a special bracelet
J's cousins decorated our door!
Mimi never disappoints! She brought Jillian's birthday clothes all the way to the Bahamas!
And possible the best gift ever...according to Jillian
Birthday dinner at the poop deck!
Even the sweet lady who cleaned our rooms sang Jillian a birthday song
Daddy bringing Jillian's $30 piece of birthday cake.
Did I mention that Atlantis is EXPENSIVE?
But...shes worth every penny
Time to go home! SAD!
We even caught Mimi doing the elevator bench pose once!!!
I see 5 exhausted girls on the way to the airport. I'll give you one guess who ISN'T sleeping at this point! Crazy P!
