Even though Keira's birthday isn't until the end of July, we celebrated both kids birthdays on June 29 at the pool. We had a great turnout of family and friends and missed the ones who were on vacation. This year, instead of gifts we asked the kids to choose a charity to help out. They chose the Dream Connection, which helps terminally or chronically ill children right here in East TN. Organization helps fund their wishes. We are so pleased with how the kids willing said it was fine not to give gifts and just let folks donate money to this cause. We are hoping to attend the board of directors meeting in July and present a check.
I hope this becomes a yearly birthday event for our family!
