We interrupt your regularly scheduled trip report, for a very special announcement. My little girl is 9 years-old. Her birthday was yesterday. We had a celebration at a local play place. All the children loved it. Might take us a couple of days to recover. Bumper cars, they were a big hit. This is a Mickey Mouse Club House, an inflatable version. He was in heaven. Her cake Back home opening gifts. My favorite shot was of her in front of her cake surrounded by her guests singing happy birthday, but I can't post that one on here. They had a ball: 6 friends from school, 5 cousins, a little brother, 2 grandmas, two aunts, and her friends' parents, and 1 mom who was glad to do it and glad it's over.
