Rylie's Birthday

We had such a fun day today for Rylie's 4th Birthday! We started the day off by waking her up singing Happy Birthday to her, which she loved (she told me later that that was her favorite present). When she got out of bed she stood up tall and showed us how much bigger she was already! It was really cute!
Then we had a Mommy-Rylie day at the Mall (Anna got to spend the day with Grandma, as Rylie was in need of some one on one time). Becky was also able to join us for a little bit. Rylie got to pick out some candy at the candy store and the cashier gave her a free cotton candy for her birthday. As you can see from the pictures, she thoroughly enjoyed it! Then we set out to do some clothes shopping for her and Anna with their Birthday money. We found some cute things for them and Rylie also got to pick out a special ball that she had been wanting.
After we wore ourselves out in the play area we had a nice lunch together. That was followed by some coffee for Mommy and a (free!) blueberry steamer for Rylie. She felt like quite the big girl!
After naps, we picked up Daddy from work and went out for Rylie's choice of evening plans. She asked that we go to Fatburger and to see the movie, Bolt at the theater. When we left the theater she told us, "that was a great movie!"
She really enjoyed the special phone calls, and messages she got throughout the day. I think she felt really special today, goal accomplished!
Saturday we are having her family birthday party at Grandpa Jim's. She is having a horse party in the barn, surrounded by real horses! She is beyond excited for this! Pictures will be coming!

What a great day you gave her. These girls of ours sure are special. It's nice to have days to remind us and them how much we LOVE Them.

It sounds like she had a wonderful birthday. I think I need to plan a day like that for myself, not even for my birthday just for fun.
