For Chloe’s birthday experience this year I took her to Schlitterbahn. She was so jealous when Chase got to go with the band on a field trip there last year, so I thought she would like it. I was right! We both had an absolute BLAST. I splurged and got the wristbands that cut down on wait times for rides, and it was definitely worth it. We were there from open to close and would not have had time to ride all the rides we did otherwise. What a blast!
The kids and I celebrated the 4th of July a day early at what has become a tradition… the Round Rock Express Independence Day baseball game with post-game fireworks!
In the past we have gotten lawn seats so the kids could run around, but this year we hit a milestone: We are all too old for the lawn. The other little kids running around us drove us a bit insane. We were run into, kicked, knocked in the head, stepped on… our free stuff went missing, water bottles were thrown around, our blanket was taken over by little bodies….
Next time we will get seats.
Chloe turned 9 today. It’s our last year of single digits (yikes)! She celebrated yesterday with a “Puppies and Kitties” themed birthday party at Austin’s Park N Pizza. The kids had so much fun!
Today Chloe requested we go to Cafe Java for breakfast so she could have a cinnamon roll, and they were so sweet to put a candle in it for her birthday. We spent the day swimming at another birthday party, went to the movies (The Secret Life of Pets 2), ate more cake, and opened family gifts. My birthday “experience” to her this year is a day at Schlitterbahn, just the 2 of us. We are excited!
I am so proud of this girl. She is smart, hard working, creative, sporty and a total individual. I love her fierce spirit and I can’t wait to see where life takes her (or I should say… where she takes it)!
