Forgot to take a picture today, so thought I'd share this beauty from Jessica & King's wedding on Saturday.  From left to right - Sylvia, me, Andrea, & Yolanda.

We finally took Emma out for her birthday dinner to The Keg.  After dinner we headed to the mall to get her 2nd ear piercings!

We finally gave Emma her 13th birthday book today - she loved it!  So thankful for all the friends and family that took the time to contribute to this gift.

Went to see this movie tonight with Emma, Linsay, and Nathan's mom, after going to Applebees for supper.  We all really enjoyed it!

Sophia has hockey tonight so she couldn't come, but Emma, Olivia, and I went with friends to see a high school musical production of The Little Mermaid tonight. It was great!

Sophia's winter girl's hockey team had their wind up today.  They had a session at The Rink, then they were taken by limo to Lasertopia where they played laser tag, ate pizza, and played arcade games. They had a blast!

Manitoba Mustangs (Sophia's team - in red) vs Manitoba Lightning - the girls first win of the season!  They're in the midst of a boys tournament where they've been getting trounced, so this was a nice change.

Today we celebrated Easter as well as Emma, Sophia, Les, and my birthdays at the Friesens.  Mmmmm, pie.

I forgot to take a picture today, so I thought I'd share one of my favourite memories of our trip.  Olivia met a girl from England named Beth while in the line for BTMR.  They hit it off and road the ride together.  We never thought to get her contact info.  We prayed that we would see them again on our trip, but got a "No" answer from God.  I suggested to Olivia that perhaps the reason they hit it off so well was so that she would pray for her, and not just for a week or two, but maybe even for the rest of her life.  And maybe she would see Beth again in heaven.

Our last day at Disney - spent in the Magic Kingdom.
 I love this picture and had to include it, but I know that when I convert this into a book at the end of the year, it won't all fit in the square shape that I'll be using, so here's another one....

Peeking through an underwater cave in the line up at the new Little Mermaid ride.

Happy birthday to me!
