Yet again, Calista had a couple of requests. She made a birthday present request one day while we were driving in the car. "Mom, for my birthday I want... anything you want to get me." Done, and done! She also told us previously that she wanted a birthday card, and she finally asked for a blue chocolate cake.
I am pleased to report that all of her requests were granted.

After presents and breakfast, we headed to Banff, where she requested we spend the day.
Then we headed back to Lake Minnewanka for a picnic lunch.
And, of course, the kids also threw rocks into the lake.
The day before, Calista and Craig "helped" me make the blue chocolate cake.
Also known as chocolate cake with blue vanilla frosting.
And Calista and I had some fun taking pictures of her and her cake.
The night culminated with a rendition of "Happy Birthday,"
And then, of course, we ate cake. Yum.
Happy birthday, Calista!
