This year for Ali's 7th birthday instead of a party, yeah, we rented a state parks cabin out Chena Hot Springs and spent the night and had Ali's birthday there. We got there that evening and made dinner and then had a little party where she opened her presents and had cake and ice cream. This year she wanted a dog cake with pink spots, this was the best I could do. We all had so much fun and it was great because my brother Jeremy and his wife Brooke flew up from Idaho to be with us and it was wonderful to have them. The cabin was a blast and after presents we went swimming at Chena Hot Springs and then came back and slept for the night. The next morning we had a lazy morning of sleeping in and Jeremy made us breakfast. It was a great way to spend a birthday and the girls had a blast. Maybe we'll make it a tradition!
