Happy 4th Birthday, Grace!

Happy Birthday to our dear Gracie! She turned 4 today, and she reminded us over and over again. Our family celebration first started with our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. We've gone every year on her birthday since she turned 1.

4th Birthday

This year was extra special since we were joined by Jeremy and Grandma. It took Jeremy a little while to get comfortable enough to explore, but Grace got right to it. We left with 1 pumpkin for Grace and 1 for Jeremy. Next up, we headed to Me N Ed's Pizza for a pepperoni pizza, by Grace's request.
Earlier in the week, I had asked Grace whether she'd prefer to have a birthday cake or to go to Coldstone. She chose ice cream! We put candles into her cotton candy w/ crushed Oreos ice cream and sang happy birthday to her. Even Jeremy got to have a few bites of ice cream this time (let's hope he's not lactose intolerant). We went home to open gifts and play for a bit before our birthday girl headed off to bed. We had such a great time together tonight. It's hard to believe that our little girl is 4! We are so blessed to have her! More pics in our photo album.

I love your pumpkin patch tradition! But I would not be able to stomach that ice cream combo. More power to you, Grace.
