So, yesterday was Kira's 9th Birthday! We really celebrated ALL weekend! On Friday we went to the movie of her choice--Night at the Museum. Saturday, her friend Rachel came over to spend the night. We made them pizzas, then they got in bed and watched a movie and ate popcorn. I was shocked when they came into our room at 10:30 telling me that they were going to bed. These girls usually stay up LATE! Sunday was our BIG day...HOLIDAY WORLD! We had a blast. We were there from open to close. Most of the day was spent in the water park. I let the girls have a little freedom, and go up and down the slides by themselves (as long as they checked in after every time.) Kira rode her 1st adult roller coaster! She rode the Raven 1st, and I didn't know if she was going to cry, pass out, or throw up...luckily she did do any. The 2nd one that she rode was The Legend...she kept her head down, eyes closed, and a smile on her face! Yesterday (her actual birthday) we had a small lunch party at her Mamaw & Papaw's. We got Kira a cake with her picture on it, just like the celeberties. Then we went to my Aunt and Uncle's for my cousin graduation party. Kira even got gifts there! One of MY personal favorite is the pink fishing pole, pink life vest, and pink tackle box she got from my parents! She of course liked everything, but her favorite part of the birthday weekend was Holiday World. We all can really tell that she is growing up into a little woman!
