Many wonderful things happened today:
It was a gorgeous sunny spring day, reminiscent of the day Lucy was born.
Lucy's siblings made her an awesome gift and she loved it.
The kids and I went ice skating, one of Lucy's favorite activities. Forest loved it, too.
We found the perfect pair of boots for Lucy's next riding adventures.
We ate a fabulous sushi lunch with Robert.
We got to horse-riding early (!) and got to cavort with the horses a little before Lucy's lesson.
Forest took a nap (!)
Lucy successfully took her horse, Chester, through a puddle--not the same as riding on the beach, but interesting, nevertheless.
Eleanor got nibbled on by a huge draft horse named Wyatt.
Friends and family called and wished Lucy a happy day.
We all worked together to make the birthday meal including GF Chai Spice cake with cream cheese frosting, and homemade noodles, Lucy's favorite.
Eleanor started practicing a song that I played on the piano when I was her age. Oh the memories!
The cat curled up in the lid to the cake keeper (which somehow landed on the floor) I don't necessarily think this is good, but it was funny.
We had a sweet and lovely celebration of the birthday girl! We're so lucky she came to live with us!
I actually managed to do my workout despite not really wanting to!
It was an excellent day!
