Mommie's 90th Birthday!

Mommie's party was Sunday afternoon after church. She probably had 40-50 friends and family come out to celebrate. I was so glad that we were able to be there as it was a very special time.

Charlotte was thrilled about the big and beautiful birthday cake. I seriously thought she was going to have a meltdown several times since the cake was delivered Saturday afternoon and she wasn't able to eat it until the next day - that was tough for a two year old. She finally got her cake and was happy as a clam.

She and my grandmother really hit if off and my grandmother kept telling me how much Charlotte took to her - which is her way of saying how special that made her feel. Obviously I was thrilled that they enjoyed each other so.

So glad I made the effot to be there. We are exhausted and traveling with my two munchkins is not my favorite thing to do, but we had a wonderful time and this past weekend will be a special memory I will have with me for always.

Side note: Dora the Explorer was played multiple times on the drive there and back. Now every time Douglass Charles sees something that has Dora on it he yells out "Dora, Dora." He never said this until the twelve hours with Dora in the car. Too funny!
