I said goodnight to a six year old…
and good morning to a seven year old.
It hasn’t registered in my brain yet.
Her birthday morning surprise!
A retired American girl doll appropriately named, Mia.
Seven is the perfect age to introduce all things American Girl.
It was love at first sight.
Mia was so exhausted for playing all day that she needed a nap before heading out that night for some birthday fun!
Her first road trip. Too cute for words.
Mia’s request was a night at a huge local indoor sports facility.
There was this trampoline basketball game…
a giant bounce house obstacle course…
rock wall climbing (go Daddy!) …
a giant jungle gym…
and even laser tag.
But as you can tell by this picture, one particular seven year old got a little too scuuuured to try it out.
The rest of us old kids did not. We had a blast and guess who won in our guys verses girls competition?
Don’t even get me started on the dodge ball game of guys verses girls. No pictures of that, thank goodness.
To end our night of fun, Aunt Maggie had the girls pose for a special little etched key chain.
Adorable to the max.
I love summer.
I love birthdays.
I love my family.
