a date with my biggest girl

We spent most of the day with a long-overdue surprise Mama Mia date.

It was an awesome day.

the first surprise: these curly things in her hair (she's been asking for them for probably a year).
the end result: "phone cords", quoted by Mia.
the second surprise...
...which little sis thinks is the most amazing thing she's ever seen.
the next surprise: homemade lemonade...
...with a side of freshly baked gluten-free chocolate cake and whipped cream.
lastly, and my (our) favorite surprise of all, a new tradition started: The Family Journal!

I love this girl.
