When It’s 6 Degrees on Your 6th Birthday…

So how do you celebrate a sixth birthday when it’s 6 degrees outside?

Naturally, drive {north} past the beautiful skyline of Chicago,

And to this indoor 84 degree kids’ paradise hotel, called KeyLime Cove.

And say hello to swim trunks and flip flops for a day or two.

Where it’s easy to say YES to exploring, staying up late, being silly, creating, and being brave.

Here’s to making the best of the next 364 days of you being SIX!

    Why not show this post to the KeyLime Cove owners and maybe they’ll give you a deal next time to blog about them? 🙂 God bless you all! Happy day, everyday!

    I am so far behind in reading blogs these days but wanted to take a quick second to wish your 4 miracles a belated Happy Birthday! What an amazing story they’ll have to share as they grown! I am sure you and Brad take the time to relate to them how special they are – what a blessing!

    Hope they had a blast celebrating – looks like the perfect way to party!!
