Today is her day,
A very special day.
Happy Birthday to The Princess!!
She’s 12 today. We’ll be having a family dinner with one cousin coming to spend the night. The crowning glory? A Texas Sheetcake, at the request of the birthday Princess.
Last Friday we went to the nearby amusement park with three friends, Candy Queen, Bookworm and Smartypants (The Princess is on the left, the others left to right.). Here they are waiting in line for the Tilt-a-Whirl, which The Princess would eventually ride 8 times. Apparently we don’t mind circling while going in a larger circle, but not so much love for the roller coasters or giant swings.
Smartypants returned with us for the second year and hopes this will be an eternal tradition. I learned that girls finishing 6th grade need considerably less attention than those finishing 5th. How many more years until my job will be finished when I pay at the gate?
Thank you to all our young friends who allowed me to take the traditional blog pictures and thank you for being such charming guests. Bookworm deserves special mention for being highly agreeable, Candy Queen for inspiring general hilarity and Smartypants for storing the most things in my bag all day!
