Emma is a lucky duck because her birthday was on Saturday. That meant an entire weekend of celebrating her. Because Emma's birthday is in June she does not have a school celebration. We are also usually preparing to leave for our summer trip and her birthday always feels rushed to me. Well, this year we did it right!
Friday night she and two friends had a girls night out. They saw a movie, went to dinner, and then had dessert (all chaperoned by mommy!). The evening was capped off by playing at the park. Then to make it even better her best friend spent the night. What a lucky girl!

In the afternoon we went to an Astros game followed by a Third Day concert. Emma was not immediately thrilled at the idea of baseball on her birthday, but the lure of a concert convinced her it would be fun. Having an ice cream sundae in a baseball hat helped!
The Astros actually won and scored lots of runs. That made it more fun for the kids. The concert was AMAZING! Third Day is just great. Go see them! Emma had a blast!!!

The party did not stop there. On Sunday we went to our friends house to swim and to have dinner. Since it was Emma's birthday, Mike made Emma's favorite....ribs, and they were so yummy! They were finger licking good and "can I please stuff myself with more" good! Emma was in heaven. Then it was finally time for her cake. Emma had requested an ice cream cake.

Love you so much dear girl. Happy Birthday!
