A few days before her actual birthday, Mali and Grandma Sandy had their annual lunch date to Red Lobster. Then, true to her form, Mali had specific plans for June 26, 2013. Opening gifts was first on the list.
She received map tools to help with with her History/Culture/Cooking camp she is super-excited for this summer. Jonathan was more than willing to throw in a free geography lesson with that. Laney wasn't too impressed.
The meals were a main highlight of the day. Oatmeal Bake for breakfast, Sushi for lunch, and the grand finale was Split Pea Soup for dinner. All of her favorites. Seriously!
We capped off that night at our pool with some store-bought pound cake to share with friends after swim lessons. Yum!
But that wasn't all...we traveled to Michigan a few days later where we had her "Fun and Floats" party at Fuller's Campground. So fun to try out a place that Jonathan had loved as a kid.
There was inner-tube floating as well as root-beer floats for our seven year old. A great time to soak up sunshine and special moments with family. Happy Birthday again dear Amalia. Thanks for including us in so much fun.
