Joy’s 5th Birthday

Today we celebrated Joy’s fifth birthday. She actually turned five February 8, 2013, but we were unable to celebrate until today. Joy is Beatrice’s daughter. Beatrice is a wonderful friend we have from the first time we lived in Kenya back in 1999-2004. Beatrice also brought Betty, her niece, along to help celebrate.

As the cake was baking, we went to the pool so Joy could swim for about 20 minutes. Then we finished the icing, let things cool, decorated the cake, ate dinner together, and celebrated the birthday! After gifts were given we took them back home. (We also had a gift for Beatrice who celebrated her birthday recently.)

Fun stuff.
