This weekend Mia celebrated her ninth birthday and I'm worn out. 

It started with the gift opening on Friday evening. 

Mia got lots of barbie items and appeared to love them all. 

Saturday morning was long and difficult, waiting for her friend Ella to arrive. But once she did, we rushed off to the pool.

The only photo from our time at the pool.

Next was dinner at Dewey's and special cupcakes for dessert.

On Sunday it was IHOP for breakfast with plans for fishing and then more pool time.

Unfortunately a storm rolled in after fishing and before we were able to make it to the pool, but the girls got some water time anyway.
