My big girl turned nine today! She was pretty pumped!
Marko had an eye appointment at the hospital this morning so we spent a fairly uneventful morning waiting in the waiting room. I did manage to strike up a conversation with a lovely couple and enjoyed hearing how they ended up on the Island. Always fun to make new friends.
After the appointment we spent some quality time at Toys R Us to pick up Emma-Lyn's birthday gift. The kids drooled over all the Lego toys and most of the stuff in the store.
We stopped in at DQ for some celebratory blizzards before finally heading home. It was a late lunch for all. Marko went to bed to rest while the rest of us puttered and I got ready for my first tutoring session.
In the evening Grammie Peric and Auntie Linda and Uncle Henk came over for supper. Emma-Lyn enjoyed all of her presents. She loves getting craft items and was super excited about this pillow she got to make:
