1-year old

11-years old

Happy Birthday Gabrielle Justine! Her 11th birthday was actually yesterday, June 10th, but we were out on a small, private lake, where I out fished everyone the first hour we were there. Hence the reason I didn't get to post this until now. We celebrated her birthday with the family on Sunday, June 8th, by going out to dinner at one of our local Mexican restaurants. Their tradition is to sing Happy Birthday in Spanish and then smash fried ice cream in the birthday boy/girl's face. This was the whole reason she picked this restaurant to go to. Why anyone enjoys that I'll never know but then again, I'm getting old so I don't enjoy stuff like that.

Before I started reading blogs, I used to think I was pretty good with the written word. Boy - what a wake up call I had on that! So instead of writing a long and drawn out ode to my girl, I'll just leave you with the above photos.

Happy Happy Birthday on this her special day! Happy Happy Birthday is what I'm "here" to say! Happy Happy Birthday, may all her dreams come true! Happy Happy Birthday from all the Walker's to you, er, her.

So did she get her letter from Hogwarts?

Feliz cumpleanos! That looks like fun but I don't want smashed ice cream anywhere but inside my cheeks. It tastes too good.
