Lydia's birthday is next week and since she is growing up soooo fast and LOVES to have "big girl time" with Mommy, I thought it would be fun to take her out for a special date.
First we went to Once Upon A Child which is a fabulous second hand store and we stocked up on summer clothes. She had so much fun trying things on and giving her own opinion on what she liked. It astounded me how fast she is growing into a beautiful little lady. Her taste in clothing and her wisdom in make good decisions made my heart so proud.
Next we went over to the mall where of course we had to dash in the photo booth!
Then we headed down to Claire's where she picked out a necklace, some bracelets and a new head band. (She told be later on that this was her favorite part of the date. Never have a I met a girl who didn't like Claire's!)
Finally, she got all dressed up in her new stuff and we went out for dinner at Olive Garden.
Mmmmmmm, bread sticks!!!
It was so precious to have this time with my sweet daughter. I hope I can always take the time to show her how important and priceless she is to me.
