My mom asked that we do something special for S on her birthday. As if the day would be anything but special!
I think for a 4-year-old, it was a pretty awesome day and did not lack specialness.
The day started off with flowers, balloons, presents, cards and a chocolate chip muffin with a birthday candle.
Then S and Daddy (who took the day off) walked to the bus stop to take a ride on the city bus. A real treat for her! She loves to point out the city bus whenever we see one.
After their ride, they walked to The Mom and Pop Place, our favorite place. M and I met them there and the girls enjoyed a snack and story time.
We had lunch at S's favorite spot. The meal included a scoop of custard with sprinkles.
After nap time, the girls and I went trick-or-treating. Then we went to our church for its Fall Festival. The girls played lots of games and got lots of candy.
Both were pretty tuckered out by the end of the day. S said her favorite part was trick-or-treating. But for her birthday part of the day, she enjoyed opening her presents.
Tomorrow will bring more fun with a birthday party with some of her friends.
