Throwback Thursday: A Sweet Little Girl & A Big Birthday Surprise

I was looking back through my blog this week and realized that there were a few really fun experiences our family shared over the last year that never made it to the blog - a great excuse to use the old "Throwback Thursday" posting theme for the next few months or so. 

Last July was our Chloe's 9th birthday, and she had been dreaming of a trip to the infamous American Girl store for as long as dreams had danced through her head. Greg and I had decided well before her birthday that we wanted to surprise her with a little overnight to NYC, which conveniently happens to be one of our favorite cities :-).

The night before we were leaving she went upstairs, put on her pajamas, brushed her teeth, and found Kit perched on her bed holding a letter addressed to her... Surprise, Birthday Girl!!

She had no idea - I don't think she ever thought she was going to get there!

She read it prrreeeettttyyyy slowly... I think she was afraid she might be misunderstanding things :-).

She wasn't the only one who was excited to be heading for the Big Apple!

Our almost-nine-year-old went to bed quite excited that night.

The next morning at 5am? NYC or bust, baby!!
