Grace turned 19 a while back, which I ruminated on back HERE, but I never talked about what we did on the big day.
First things first though…Elle and Lar surprised Grace by coming home the night before her birthday. They were coming from Hawaii for the summer and were supposed to come a couple days earlier but totally fooled her. Here’s the reunion which my girls may make me take down in a minute, but I think it’s pretty sweet:
The next day we got up at the crack of dawn to get to the lake, Grace’s favorite past-time ever.
Came home for our traditional bday breakfast and gift-opening:
A few bday pictures…gotta capture how my kids look as they turn one year older each year:
Best friends to help celebrate:
A little cake and ice cream:
And what better way to wrap up a birthday than a covid-distanced and masked kind of eerie visit to Skateland?
It was a good day.
We love this girl more than I can say!
Holding onto her tight before the flies the nest again to become a missionary.
