Lucy turned nine last month.  I did a little post for her back HERE on the big day but never posted about the festivities.  It was an “on” year for a birthday party for her so we made it a big one.
We bobbed for apples:
We swam:
We had a “fish swimming” cake, made under Lucy’s strict instructions…
We had a group of the sweetest ever kids over to help celebrate.

(love all the love in that last picture)

And we had real-live party planners:

It was a pretty grand day.
I pretended that big party was her actual birthday since in maneuvering nine other people’s schedules it just so happened that I had to be gone on October 1st.  Luckily Dave and the kids did a great job putting on and documenting the real deal day.

Sure love this baby girl of ours.
