We started with dinner at one of her favorite local restaurants in town, trying to let Friday evening traffic die down. She wasn't hungry at all, and was pretty lethargic, but she was a trooper and hung out with her family with a smile.

|Avalon, through most of dinner|
|She perked up when dessert came with a candle|
We all had a great time at the park, as you can see by the photos. Of course, Avalon was not quite herself and we promised we would bring her back another time when she felt better. But we made the most of the afternoon, and Daddy and I took turns disappearing with Loudoun, taking him on the faster/super soaker rides.
|we haven't used a stroller in years, but renting one this weekend was a must (and genius)|
|This is how she waited in line for rides|
|Avalon is always up for "paint face"|
|Waiting for Shamu show|
|She did NOT want to get soaked (looking ahead for Shamu)|

Daddy took the kids to breakfast on Sunday and let me sleep in (since I was up with Avalon in the middle of both nights) and we drove home shortly after.
It wasn't the most ideal weekend, because my baby was sick!! But considering the circumstances, we had a great time. :-) Happy fifth birthday, Avalon!
