Well around 6am she and Lucy were up. Sheesh! After I bit I let the kids come down and check out a few of the morning birthday surprises.
After school we headed out to one of Ben's co-worker's (Laura) house. She has horses and we thought it would be a neat experience for Emmy and the rest of the kids to ride one. Emmy is in that girl phase of loving horses . . .
Then Ben took each of the kids with him. They went "fast." They all loved it - well, except for Lucy who didn't go again.
We left and came home and had dinner, then opened the rest of her gifts, then played, then did homework (darn school-night!), then had cake and ice cream. (It was homemade coconut ice cream and was pretty awesome.)
Unfortunately it did not come true.
It was a great day celebrating and loving our great Emmy girl.
