Happy Birthday to Lauren

Yesterday was Lauren’s 8th birthday and she decided it was time to get her ears pierced!  I was probably more excited than she was.  Lawrence took her out to IHOP for a daddy daughter breakfast and she went back and forth a couple of times, would she or wouldn’t she?  But in the end she decided to do it.  I was so mad at myself for forgetting the big camera so forgive the blurry pictures.

Ready to go!

Ears

Getting it done:

After the ear piercing we headed to Justice for a little birthday shopping.  I think it was the first time she’d ever been in that store and she was in heaven.  After the mall, her request was to go ice skating so we headed out to Manassas to skate at their outdoor rink.  I’ve already had numerous requests from all the kids that we go ice skating again today.  It was a hit.

After ice skating, we headed to Red Robin for dinner per Lauren’s request.  We talked about our favorite Lauren memory from the last year, we ate, we sang.  It was a good day.  A really good day.  It’s hard to believe my little girl is already 8!
