Rachel is 11!

For Rachel's birthday this year, we decided to do a mini-cousin swap. We like to meet at the Wendy's in Youngstown...not sure the people who work there like it quite as much, because our kids can get pretty loud:)
This time, I took Karen back with me and I sent Hannah, Nathan, and Aaron up to Ohio. Pretty good deal, I'd say.

Plus, it was so good for these two to have some time together. They are spending lots of time online chatting together, playing games and writing stories. I love that they are friends.

 Christian made them fun shaped pancakes for breakfast, and helped them build a huge blanket fort in the basement.
 On Saturday we took the girls to Sky Zone.
 We drove up to Madison on Sunday to swap back, and had a yummy cake for Rachel and Uncle Jonathan. Why can't Rachel do a normal face for pictures???
 On her actual birthday, we did Joker's Cafe, which is becoming a regular tradition.

 Daddy was the server, while I prepped the plates in the kitchen.
 Her homemade cake was a bit of a disaster, but we were all so full, we didn't really mind.
Happy birthday, Crazy girl!
