We started the KC birthday tradition with Reese when she was five. We all look forward to it every year! This year, Evee joined the party! Although I loved having her with us, I can't lie, she was a hassle. We actually lost her in the American Girl doll store. Finally, found her...in the bathroom...pooping. Scared me to death!
Here's the recap of our trip...
We arrived Saturday evening just in time for dinner....
Mine and Chet's (and my BFF's) favorite Mexican spot!
Followed by some evening shopping....our girl had gift cards burning a hole in her pocket!
Evee....always touching, hugging, kissing, and talking to manikins.
Normally, our trip is up and back all in one day, but since we didn't leave until after Reese's party, we decided to stay the night. Chet found us a very nice, centrally located hotel that would have been fun to spend more time at, but our priorities were shopping :) So, sleeping...that's really all we needed our hotel for. However, even while sleeping, it provided us with plenty of entertainment....
Turns out someone was smoking in their room and because of that, every guest saw every guest in their jammies.
Sunday was spent spoiling our girl, chasing Evee, and stuffing our faces!
Daddy had cake waiting for the birthday girl when we got home ♥
8! 8! 8! How is our sweet girl 8??? I'll never forget finding out I was pregnant with her...shock is about the only word that describes it. But God knew exactly what he was doing. She gave us a hefty scare before she even came into the world, and I'm reminded often how our lives could have been SO different. I will be forever grateful our prayers were answered and she came into this world healthy! She's such an awesome, good kid....also loving, smart, compassionate, beautiful, freckle-faced, and oh-so very, very special ♥
Love you, Reesee!
8 is great!
