Double Digits

Today ...


SHE is 10.  


Somehow, with just a few blinks of an eye, she went from this ...


                      1 month                                       1st bday                                     2nd bday

                              3rd  bday                                4th bday                            5th bday

6th bday                         7th bday

 
                                                       8th bday                           9th bday


To This ...


 Okay.  Maybe not quite like this...  But it sure feels like we're close.

We celebrated her birthday last Saturday with a gaggle of her girlie friends, doing the one activity she truly loves.



Twelve of her nearest and dearest harnessed up and for almost two hours climbed the walls at our local rock climbing gym.  We went there several months ago with my brother, and knew instantly that it was where Riley wanted to have her party.




The girls bounced around.  They climbed.  They wasted ate pizza.  And snarfed down cupcakes and juice.  The perfect amount of time for a perfect party.  Short.  Sweet.  And not in my house, so nothing for me to clean up.  Score!


They left with a very small treat.   Clever, no?  Of course, I can't take any credit for coming up with this ... my mind was absolute mush by the time I finally got around to thinking about give-aways!

In all, a very special party for my very special first born.

Happy 10th birthday Riley.  We love you!
