Birthday fun!

We had a blast on my daughter's birthday yesterday! She said it was the best birthday of her life!! I kept her busy throughout the day with a few surprises! Here is a recap..... We started the day off at Barnes and Noble/Starbucks with her favorite Caramel Frappacino. This was her first surprise. She loves those (expensive, but worth it for the smile on you new 10 year olds face!) Frappacino's and loves to browse the children's section while sipping! Next we were off the see the Night at the Museum. It was really good, she thought it was better than the first one. Unfortunately there are two words that they could have left out completely....why do that feel the need to do that anyway? Just a heads up....
We had a little time to kill before my husband was able to meet us for dinner so we headed to the Washington park for a little photo shoot! She had a ball.... It was so funny because there were some kids playing in the water and every time we would get near the water they would move to were we were, so we would move....then here they would come!!! Finally the Mom told them to stop! Boy, kids these days!!!

Then we met Daddy for dinner at Quiznos for a torpedo sub... yum!

Then came her next surprise! She got to pick out her very own hermit crab!!!!! She was sooo excited. She had one several years ago and wanted another one. His name is rainbow because he has a rainbow shell. He is hard to see in the picture but believe me, he is in there!

On the way home with Rainbow!

Then it was finally home for ice cream cake and a few presents!

It was such a great day! My baby is 10! I can't believe it!!! sniffsniff..... I love you Annalee!

10, that's a great age! Your daughter looks so beautiful and grown up. Sounds like such an awesome day. Happy birthday to your little girl :)

Isn't it the best when they tell you it's the best day ever? It's one of my favorite parts of being a mom--making things special!

Thanks for the words of encouragement, it means a lot!

Aww...wah! ha ha! She is so darling and beautiful! Happy Birthday, Annalee! {i just love that name!}

What great photos and a really fun day! Looks like she had the best birthday! A hermit crab...that sounds like a great idea for us...some day!hee hee!

{btw...I know what you mean about iCarly! And Spongebob. When I heard one of them say the word 'stupid' for the first time, I told them they cold not watch it anymore if I heard that again! They know some words are not nice and inappropriate, so they still watch it, but they've been warned! And, I can't help but laugh at it sometimes...oops!}
