Ashton's Birthday!

She turned five and we had a great time. Today we went to the Frederik Meijer Garden to see the butterfly exhibit. We saw plenty of really neat plants and many butterflies. We walked and they fluttered around us and landed on people. I even had a large blue one land on my back which seemed to entertain the kids.

After we got our fill of butterflies and African sculptures (that part didn't hold the kids' interest quite like the insects) we headed off for Chuck E. Cheeses. I hate Chuck E. Cheeses and this was an especially bad time to go because of it being Spring break for many kids. The place was packed and we had trouble finding a place to sit. At least the kids had a good time. The rest of the afternoon was spent shopping a bit.

We got home and made some of Ashton's favorites for dinner: macaroni and cheese with chicken nuggets. We ate some cake and sang Happy Birthday just before she opened her gifts. We all had a great time.
