Daphne's 4th Birthday
March 27, 2007
So Laura asked Daphne what she wanted for her birthday. Daphne said she wanted to be on TV because Laura was on TV with the Bears and Colts signs. At least she didn't ask for anything unreasonable! So, off to Chicago we went.
Playing and posing in Cityfront Plaza
Then we split up. Jean and Brendan drove Daphne and Laura to Channel 7 News and then went to the restaurant for lunch. Terry and Kathy took Erin in the stroller to the restaurant. Erin spotted a bunch of pigeons and said, "Look, chickens!" We cracked up!
And then, of course, Daphne and Laura got on the Channel 7 11:00 News!
We had lunch at The House Of Blues

Then it was time to slide and slide:
Daphne and Erin started off the fun
Then Brendan joined in
Grandma Kathy stood guard on the edge....Daphne
And finally, a boy named Preston joined the sliding
The following Saturday, we all went to the Hebron Lanes to celebrate Daphne's birthday:
Daphne's cake made by Aunt Jean
Erin....Becky and Nathan....Madison and Nathan
Daphne didn't want to bowl, but Cousin Maddy cracked me up. She would throw her ball and then walk away. Sometimes she would glance at it slowly going down the aisle. One time, only the head pin went down! It was soooo funny. But she really seemed to like bowling.
