Happy Birthday to Roo!!

Today was our sweet little Bennett Roo's 8th Birthday! I can't believe how quickly time flies by. We celebrated her birthday all weekend long with a friends party on Saturday. Her friends Addy, Pieper, McKell, & Avery all came over and went on the slip n' slide and had a water balloon fight. They each made their own flower clips for their hair and Bennett chose to have snow cones instead of a cake and ice cream.
After that our family went out to dinner to Red Robin then over to the carnival for some rides. Poor little Roo got home and the Red Robin dinner didn't stay in her belly too long after those crazy rides. :(

Today she had a Birthday party over at Grandma Jeanine's house with all of her cousin's. They cooked her a delicious dinner and she got to play with her cousins. Bennett is such a fun loving little girl and a delight to have around the house. Happy Birthday sweetie!! We love you!

**She loves jewelry and make-up and anything girly**
**She loves all of her friends and little cousins and would play ALL THE TIME if we would let her**
**She loves to be a mother to both her baby brother and her big brother (I think Jordan might appreciate it more than Taylor for some reason)**
