In true Hadley style, she chose to celebrate her birthday by having a "Girls' Day Out" at the "toenail store." And so that's exactly what we did. :)
We started the afternoon with cake and gifts at our house. Babe chose a handful of her "best girlfriends" to share in her special day. She also requested a "Cinderella" cake. Because the party started at 3:00 and we had such a small crowd, cake was pretty much the only item on the menu. It was perfect!
The girls played for a little bit (and us moms spent some time together!) before we sang "Happy Birthday." Homegirl was in heaven. I'm not sure I've ever met a child who enjoys the spotlight as much as she does. :)
Party day was nothing but good. :)
After the cake, presents, and party favors (nail polish!), we loaded up and headed down the street to my very favorite nail salon, where each girl was treated to a full-on pedicure.
For the record, I don't think I had a pedicure until I was twenty years old. Hadley has now had two. :)
My most favorite moment, though, was when Babe said to her technician, "Don't cut off my toes, okay?"
This was a close second:
We all went our separate ways once the pedicures were complete. Babe and I were lucky enough to come home to this gift from Granti, Auntie, and DB:
There are no words.
