The weather was absolutely beautiful this past weekend so Dave, Skylar and I decided to take a trip down to D.C.  We had lunch at Union Station and then walked around and saw the sights.  We also let Skylar loose so she could test out her new white shoes. :-)  FUN - FAMILY - TIME!!!

We decided on a "sweet shoppe" theme for Skylar's birthday this year because she is the sweetest little girl and who doesn't love tons of candy.  Skylar's Sweet Shoppe included hershey bars, cupcakes, brownies, cookies, jelly beans, gummy bears, misty mints, iced pretzels, iced cookies, and her very own smash cake.   Before we indulged in the sweets, the guests had pizza, bbq nachos, chips, and chick fil-a nuggets.  We appreciate all the loved ones who attended to make this party so special for the birthday girl!!
