Shannon had a prolonged birthday since we were busy with Christopher in the hospital. On the day of her actual birthday she had pancakes for breakfast, then she opened some of her presents from us. Here she is with her new camera.
She went to her cousins' house for the rest of the day and we had her actual birthday party a few nights later. She made out like a bandit!
Leah enjoyed the cake a lot.
Shannon got a science kit that came with a fossil for her to excavate, a volcano to build, and triops eggs. She thought the fossil was really neat, and she has already started her triops eggs. Tonight we might have to do the volcano.
Aside from anything related to science, Shannon also loves to read. This picture isn't great because Matt was trying to get a candid shot of the girls reading together. This is one of their favorite things to do.
