My girl likes to party all the time

Harper's birthday is tomorrow but we celebrated it on Saturday.  I wanted to have a big roller skating party for her this year and I was planning it but she told me she really just wanted to spend a special day with us and her best friend Sarah Kate.  So that's what we did.  She planned out everything she wanted to do and we made it happen.  And I think she had the BEST day and we loved it so much too.  (And so much easier than a party!) 

We started the day by picking up Sarah Kate and heading to Cracker Barrel for breakfast! Scott and Will Holden were with us but they went back home for a little bit after that.  

Because the next thing Harper wanted to do was go to Claire's.  This is a mecca for my girls.  They love to go there.  I got the girls a few things.  If I tell them they can have something - they will spend 45 minutes picking it out.  Decisions, decisions.  

Then we met the boys and went bowling! This was a lot of fun and Harper beat everyone but Scott.  

Harper wanted to have lunch at a little mexican place near our house.  We eat there a lot for Sunday lunch and my girls think it's the best restaurant in the world.  Sarah Kate knew they would sing to you on your birthday so she asked the waiter.  And when they came out and sang to her - it was the sweetest thing.  She was THRILLED to death! I posted the video on my instagram under "Harper" at the top.  

We came home for a little bit after that and the girls played and we ate cake.  

And they had a lot of fun together! 

Our family! 

Me and my girl! 

Harper and her daddy

Harper wanted an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen and she wanted a swimming theme since she does swim team.  

Then we took Sarah Kate home so we could have some family time and we took the kids swimming at our community center inside.  Will Holden HATED the water this past summer but he was loving it on Saturday so I can tell this summer will be fun.  We are planning a trip to the beach so hopefully he will love it! 

We changed the kids and dried their hair at the gym after swimming and went to eat Chuy's.  That was Harper's last pick of the day.  This day was a little bit of torture for Scott and I because we are on the Keto Diet so no chips or cake for us.  It's hard to sit and stare at chips and not eat them but I did it! Anything for my girl! 

She felt special and loved and that's the most important theme.  We are just so thankful for all nine of her years!
