Another Month of 5's

Well this family just had to continue the theme of  5's (click 5 to read), which I shared in January.  April brings another month of three birthdays - yes, we have three birthdays in January and three in April, only two of our children have their own birthday month.(they also didn't fit in the 5's this year)

Here are our otters!!  Yes, I have discussed their part in our family and they are all April birthdays.  Otters, Lions, Golden Retrievers - Oh My. (click title to read)

Now for the 5's - Son  turned 25!!!

Daughter - multiple of 5 - 20!!!!

Greatest Dad and Husband ever - and still on the parenting and husband journey 57!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So Happy Birthday to our April Otters!!!                                                    We couldn't laugh without you!
Yes, one celebrated a birthday on Good Friday and another on Easter....we had a full weekend!  We had the joy of celebrating birthdays and Easter with my 95 year old mother-in-law, sister-in-law and nephew's family.  I hope you all had a great Easter.

Happy Birthday to them all! I think the whole 5 thing is so cute. You're on a roll.

Since this is my jubilee year, I feel that I can join you. And the husband too... verrrrry soon, in fact.

Your daughter is so pretty! She looks so much like my Miss Whimsy. Really!

Me and two of mine all have b-days of the 21st-three different months but all the 21st, makes it easier to remember. :) I hope you had a great Easter too.
