Ashlyn had her 7th Birthday this weekend. We spent the whole day celebrating. The morning started off with a surprise Birthday Breakfast at the local IHOP. Ashlyn had a smiley face pancake and fruit. We left everyone else at home so she could have some Mom and Dad time.
Then... the long awaited moment. We took her to get her ears pierced. She was so excited and so nervous. But her excitement won over, and she bravely sat still to get them done. By 10:30 in the morning she had declared this, "The Best Birthday Ever!" Then, she had a mandatory dance rehearsal from 12:00- 2:30. She really didn't want to go, but the idea of showing off her "new" ears and Birthday cupcakes for the class got her there. After dance she played with her friends for a while until it was time to go out for the family birthday dinner. The highlight of the night was Disney on Ice. We brought one of her best friends and baby Brooklynn. Apparently, my older 3 children are too mature to enjoy such outings.
