Pre-teen Party

When Ruth realized we were going to be at the beach on her birthday, her only lament was that she wasn't going to be able to have a party with her friends. So, we got out the calendar and found exactly one weekend in which it would be possible to have a party with her friends before we left: this one. Thankfully, all four of the girls she wanted to invite were available. We met the girls at Starbucks this morning, where we fortified ourselves with caffeine for a day of shopping, ice skating, cow sitting, ice cream eating and a whole lot of giggling. These are delightful girls, and we had a wonderful time! Personally, I'm glad for the opportunity to ease into 12. I need some time to get used to the idea, since it doesn't even seem like it should be possible that my baby girl is already that old.
